Event Description

W. J. Weeks's Octagon house, built in the 1850s and destroyed by fire in the first quarter of the 1900s, was both an innovative building and a local curiosity. In this presentation, Dr. McGovern will discuss how historical archaeology sheds light on the Weeks' lived experiences, and the social meanings of the octagon house.
