Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 5/26/1999
Location: Site - General
Work Type: Excavation
Notes: Excavation has begun at the northeast corner where the new addition is to be constructed. I looked in the pit and in the spoils and found odd artifacts (piece of cow bone, transferware, and glass from a lamp globe according to Beth Acuff, DHR Curator). Called Cara Metz to see if an archaeologist should have a look before foundations are poured. Cara suggested that I call Tony Opperman.
