Edmund Dlutowski -  Lowrie/Shaw House

 

 

The Society retains Dr. Edmund T. Dlutowski   as its staff archaeologist.  He has supervised   excavations at the Lowrie/Shaw House and   the  Little Red School House, properties    owned  by the Society.

We also provide examination of properties and a consultation service for potential archaeological sites at the request of individuals and businesses.     A fee may be charged for this service.                                                                        

Through our Junior Archaeologist program, students, ages 12 and up, participate in digs and the mapping and the cataloging of artifacts.  Junior Archaeologists work Sundays, May through September, excavating, and then meet during the fall and winter to clean and catalog found items.  Parents often become interested and participate as well.

In June of 1999, two of our Junior Archaeologists, Isaac McKeever and Mallory Kisor, were the youngest individuals to ever present a paper to the statewide conference of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology.

Students who wish to participate in the program may call the Butler County Historical Society’s office at 724-283-8116 for more information.
