What lies beneath the historic Shingle House in Warwick? A 15×20 foot stone building? Buriedsix6 feet underground? A hidden chimney? Two hidden cisterns? A GPR-located buried mystery feature? Hundreds of artifacts? Could it be that the Warwick Historical Society’s ShingleDig Team has unearthed important, even unprecedented, new information about the colonial days of the Single House? And if so, when will they share it with the public?
The Warwick Historical Society (WHS) will present “ShingleDig: Season Three” on Sun., Mar. 26 at 2 p.m. at the A.W. Buckbee Center, located at 1 Colonial Ave. in Warwick. All of these questions will be answered in the presentation which will feature finds, photos and information from the 2016 digging season at the Shingle House, along with the 2016 well dig and the upcoming summer camp at Baird’s Tavern.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended, but not required. For more information or to make a reservation, call 986-3236, ext. 101.
