Calling all history buffs, archaeology nerds, and anyone with an interest in local history! Join us on Saturday, May 13 for the first ever Frost Town Archaeology Symposium. This symposium will explore the history of Frost Town, a former sawmill town located on what is now nature center property.
Over the course of the day, archaeologists, historians, and local scholars will be giving presentations on the archaeological remains of Frost Town, rural archaeology in Western New York, and the history of archaeological work at the Cumming Nature Center.
The day will feature three panels filled with local scholars and students and a keynote by Dr. Alex Smith, the director of Frost Town Archaeology. We will end the event with an opening reception for the nature center’s exhibit about Frost Town, which will run from May through November. Panels begin at 10am and run throughout the day. The symposium will end with a keynote lecture and an opening reception for the Frost Town exhibit at the Cumming Nature Center.
