Garden Planting Unearths History in Lynchburg

Posted:
Lynchburg, VA - A dig at the legacy Museum in Lynchburg uncovered an unexpected surprise.

On Wednesday, five groups of volunteers were out working for the United Way Day of Caring.

They cleaned, landscaped, and began to dig a garden, when workers uncovered some shards of glass, porcelain, and some pieces of iron and brick.

 One of the museum’s board members is a professor at Randolph College and an archeologist. She took pieces to inspect them and she will head up an archeological dig to see if there is anything else.

“You don't expect when you're digging a garden that you're going to find porcelain or you know anything really. So it's very exciting," said Museum Administrator Nina Polley.

  The museum hopes this dig will help piece together the history of the house.
