The Past Be­neath our Feet

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

A His­tory Walk around the grounds of the Old Stone House Mu­seum en­ti­tled The Past Be­neath our Feet will be pre­sented by An­drew Beaupre on Thurs­day Sept. 18, 11:00--1:00. It is Free and open to the pub­lic.

An­drew, who con­ducted an ar­chae­o­log­i­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tion at the Mu­seum this sum­mer, will point out var­i­ous land­scape fea­tures and ex­plain what they might tell us about hid­den his­tory of Brown­ing­ton. Dis­cov­er­ing the orig­i­nal foun­da­tion site of Brown­ing­ton Academy is one in­trigu­ing mys­tery in need of so­lu­tion.

The two story wooden school­house build­ing was re­moved from its foun­da­tion in 1869 and rolled down the hill to its present po­si­tion, where it serves as both Grange and church hall. Its orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion is now a hay field. For in­for­ma­tion 754-2022, www.old­stone­house­mu­seum.org.
