NEWS AND TRIBUNE BRIEFS — For July 11

CHARLESTOWN

Historical society to meet

Clark’s Grant Historical Society will meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 15, at the Charlestown Public Library, 51 Clark Rd., Charlestown.

The speaker will be Anne Bader, archaeologist and founder of Corn Island Archaeology LLC. In 2002, she formed the Falls of the Ohio Archaeological Society. In 2004, Anne was awarded the Indiana Archaeology Award. She occasionally serves as adjunct instructor at Jefferson Community College in Louisville where she teaches courses in archaeology and New World civilization. 

In December 2011, in anticipation of planned development, archaeological investigations were done within Colston Park (also known as Colston Memorial Park), a city park located in Jeffersonville. As a result, the boundaries of the old Jeffersonville City Cemetery were delineated. In addition, a historic dump site was found with copious amounts of historic materials. These sites possess significant data that would enhance our understanding of the history of the area, and are considered eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Properties.

The public is invited, and refreshments will be served. For more information, call 812-256-5777 or 812-294-4080.
