Fort Warwick is a 1770s militia-built fort that was important in early settlement & Revolutionary War history. Visitors can watch or participate. All tools will be provided. Participants might bring gardening gloves, water, and a folding chair as needed. Artifacts from previous excavations will be displayed. Remote sensing will be conducted, using machines like ground penetrating radar to look for cultural features at the fort site and the nearby Warwick's cemetery, which can be toured. Fort Warwick maple syrup, made on site, might be available! Pre-registration not required. More information is available from Dr. Kim Arbogast McBride (email@example.com) or Robert Sheets (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via Fort Warwick Facebook page.
The site is on the south end of Green Bank; the driveway is immediately north of the concrete bridge over Deer Creek, running behind the Church of God.
This event is apart of the 2020 Cal W. Price Appalachian Enrichment Series.
