Farmstead Archaeologist to Speak at Annual Meeting, January 22

Archaeologist, Joseph Pnewski, will be speaking at the CCHS Annual Meeting, Sunday January 22, at 1 PM. The meeting will be held at the CCHS building located at 555 West First Street, Waconia.

Joe oversaw the archaeology study at the Peterson farm last summer.  The project was part of the County wide Resilient Communities Project, and Joe’s Master’s Thesis. In their work, they discovered the foundation of a building and where a fence line was located.  The Annual Meeting is open to members and nonmembers alike and there is no fee.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

I am the Executive Director at the Carver County Historical Society. The truth of the matter is, that I am not sure I want to admit to how many years I have been in this business. Suffice it to say I have a Masters degree in Public and Nonprofit Administration and began my career in the 1980s. Oops, did I say that? I was reared on a farm, and began my career working at the MNHS site, the Oliver Kelley Farm. The love of the land and history run deep in my blood.
