The archaological dig on the Fleckenstein Farm by Greg Shipley and some trained volunteers has found some interesting things. They would like to establish the footprint of Gen. Wayne's fort. There is more about this on our Facebook page. Click on the picure to see the whole newspaper article. Some of the artifacts may be on display in the history tent at German Heritage Days. There is also more information on events.
