Borchard Park Recap

Last year, at about this time, we were busy planning a shovel-testing project of Borchard Park, here in Saginaw. You can read previous posts about the project here, here, and here. While we didn’t find the intact early 19th century deposits we were hoping for, we did find a few artifacts and we learned a bit about the land use history of the park. For those interested, a brief report on our 2014 fieldwork at Borchard Park is now available in the “Archaeology” section of the Castle Museum’s website.
