William Nickerson Homesite: Lost and Found
Archeologist Craig Chartier is back again after another year of excavations at the William Nickerson Homesite. The project was initiated by the Nickerson Family Association in 2016, and the first dig resulted in the discovery of the original homesite of William and Anne Nickerson in 2017. So far Craig and his crew have found evidence of blacksmithing, pieces of pottery from Europe, tobacco pipes, and evidence that the Nickerson household was using Native American pots. Learn about the the search, the discovery, and the potential of this very significant piece of Chatham's history.
