|Current Function:||Historic site|
The project area for 2007 is located west of Elliot Park on East Grant Street at 7th Avenue South. It is currently a gravel parking lot, but historical maps show private houses in this area during the 19th and early 20th centuries. We are also lucky to have an aerial photograph of the site from 1938. Although we may find foundations from the houses, most of our excavation area will be in what used to be peoples' backyards.
