Description

Archaeological excavations took place last fall and this winter on the historic Preble homestead in York Village, prior to the commencement of construction of a subdivision. The property was first occupied by the Preble family in 1642, and they remained there for over 200 years. The Preble garrison was one of only three fortified houses in York that withstood the 1692 Native American raid that destroyed much of the town. Project volunteer Tad Baker presents his historical research on the property, as well as some initial information on the archaeological discoveries, which includes the remains of several early Preble homes, and the fortified walls that protected them in 1692.

OPTIONAL MEAL TO GO: Enjoy a bowl of homemade New England Corn Chowder, accompanied by bread from When Pigs Fly, and cookies.

Your meal will be packaged, labeled with your name, and available for pick up outside at the side door (by the bluestone patio). You will need to heat your meal at home.
