Digging Up History

Fenton Center To Show Off Findings During Archaeology Day Saturday

August 6, 2014

During the summer of 2012, the Fenton History Center, in conjunction with the University at Buffalo Archaeological Survey, began searching for the lost landscape of Gov. Reuben Fenton's estate, Walnut Grove. Evidence for several outbuildings was discovered and over 700 artifacts, some definitely Fenton related, were collected. In 2013 the excavation focused on a series of stone foundations located in the area of a presumed greenhouse structure, but it was determined to be a barn like structure from the same time as the 1863 Fenton Mansion.
