Have you ever found some unusual unidentified stone remnants or structures while walking on local trails? This is your chance to ask the experts for their opinion!  Westport’s landscape is dotted with remnants of the past such as mill stones, lye extraction stones, foundations, gravestones, stone walls, and unusual rock formations.  Archaeologists Holly Herbster and Suzanne Cherau of the Public Archaeology Lab will endeavor to shed light on some of these mysterious stone remnants that are often our only visible connections to Westport’s industrial and agricultural heritage. The audience is encouraged to bring along photos of stone structures for discussion and identification. Or even better, please email images in advance to [email protected].

This program is co- sponsored by the Westport Historical Society and Westport Land Conservation Trust.
