Thank You Everyone!

Open House wrapped up today at 4 pm followed by a special canoe ride for the hard-working student archaeologists at Fort St. Joseph. Once again our event was a huge success. Visitor counts estimate about 1,800 people came to join in on the fun, some for the first time this year, many returning for a second, third, or fourth year and some even came in from as far as New Jersey (full disclosure: that's because they're my family). Our students were excited to share everything they've been learning this summer and were grateful for the opportunity to talk to so many interested people. We'd like to say a gigantic THANK YOU! to everyone who came out and helped make this event a success. Stay tuned, we have a  few more days left in the field and a few more exciting stories to tell!
