Please join us for an interesting evening looking at the clues to the fascinating and varied history of Treat Island that were unearthed during the Phase 1 Archaeological Survey that took place there in September 2016 with the help of many members of the local community.

MCHT regional steward Deirdre Whitehead will present the findings of the week-long project. Led by professional archaeologists, the project was carried out by 35 volunteers and 60 students from local schools.

Treat Island has a complex history involving Native American land use, early Euorpean settlement, smuggling, international border conflicts, fish processing, and the Quoddy Dam Project.

This event is free and open to the public.
