Archaeology Site & Morlatton Village Open House

Saturday, May 15, 2021 • 10am-3pm

The Historic Preservation Trust of Berks County (HPTBC) invites you to join us in Morlatton Village to learn about the families that called these buildings home. Additionally, the Society of Pennsylvania Archaeology, Chapter 21, along with the HPTBC will present the latest archaeological findings at the 1716 Mouns Jones House. Chapter 21 conducts archaeological excavations weekly from April through October at the property and has uncovered numerous artifacts over the years relating to the history of this important structure. The Mouse Jones House is the oldest standing building in Berks County.

Please note, this program will take place entirely outdoors and there will be no restrooms available on-site. We ask that visitors please wear a mask and maintain proper social distancing.
