April 26th Meeting:

Tom Ashmore will present his findings on his on-site archeological project in determining the actual location of the Butterfield’s Grape Creek Station.  In total this was a 10-year project to identify the location, but it took until 2017 to receive permission by the landowners to actually locate the station on the ground.  Only one other person was allowed to join the project to adhere to owner restrictions. So Tom and C.A. Maedgen conducted the work on weekends between March and June 2017.  Tom will present the background research, to include the satellite and drone study of the site and archeological step-by-step investigation to make a confident determination of the location and layout of the actual station.   The owners also allowed the artifacts to be removed and Tom will have the artifacts at the meeting for members to view. 

Location: Ft Concho Living History Stables Classroom
Time: 7:00 p.m.
