Turpin Dig Returns; Volunteers Invited to Help

Remember the Turpin dig from last summer? The archeological project that started on Anderson Township Greenspace on the former Turpin homestead site resumes this year. 

As something new in 2022, volunteers are invited to take part in the process, which starts May 16 and runs through June 17. Hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. except for Sundays. 

Plans for the dig include re-excavations at the Turpin site as well as engaging visitors with an improved and expanded augmented reality app prototype. 

Parking is available on the bike trail next to Speedway on State Route 32 while you access the dig at State Route 32 and Clough Pike.
