Digging History: Screening with Q&A: Archaeological Discoveries at the Hagerstown Jonathan Street Cabin
Time & Location
About The Event
Preservation Maryland purchased the threatened Jonathan Street cabin in early 2020. First steps included stabilization, design planning, and archaeology. It is now under restoration and is just one of the revitalization projects planned for the heart of the African American neighborhood of Hagerstown, Maryland. As part of the project, the State Highway Administration’s lead archaeologist, Dr. Julie Schablitsky invited Maryland Public Television to follow the archaeological team for a day. The result is a 5 minute mini-documentary about the discoveries made onsite.
Panelists include: Nicholas Redding, Preservation Maryland; Reggie Turner, Western Maryland CDC; Dr. Julie Schablitsky, State Highway Administration; Amy Oden, Maryland Public Television
