A Millennium of History and Heritage at the Buffum Street Site and the Buffalo Creek Reservation
Wednesday November 28, 2019 at 7pm
Presentation by the Houghton Chapter of the New York State Archeology Association will present a Free and Open to the Public Program at
Buffalo Museum of Science, Cummings Room
Join Alyssa Mt. Pleasant and Susan Maguire as we review the long history of settlement at the Buffum Street Site. Maguire will provide a review of the archaeological evidence for a Middle Woodland Mound with its associated village dating to approximately AD 1000 and a 16th-century Iroquoian palisaded village. In the spring of 1780, Seneca displaced by the Sullivan Campaign of 1779 resettled along the banks of the Buffalo Creek and established a village on the site of these earlier settlements. Mt. Pleasant will discuss the establishment of this village and the formation of the Buffalo Creek Reservation. UB Archaeological Survey will have artifacts demonstrating the extensive material culture of the site on display.
