It was also a day of general organizing and creating new file folders, as I may not be in the museum before it opens to visitors for the season on Saturday, April 2. Farm Museum Curator George Ashley will be hosting that day as I’ll be out of town.
I also played host today to a visitor, Hatfield archeaologist Randy Daum, who gave the great presentation at our meeting this past week, about his discovery of a late 1600s Colonial village in North Hatfield. He was interested in some of the old maps showing homesteads, in the piece of a brass spoon from the 17th century, and our old deeds. If you have any 17th century (or early 18th century) deeds or artifacts from Hatfield, especially from the Bradstreet area, consider showing them to Randy, as it may help his research. And if you’re looking for a place to keep those items safe and make them available to you and the public for the future, please consider donating them to the Historical Museum.
