Dayton Stagecoach Inn Archaeology Investigation and Tours

Dayton Stagecoach Inn Archaeology Investigation and Tours

        On Friday, March 24 from 10 am to 4 pm and Saturday, March 25 from 8 am to 4 pm archaeologists will be working with volunteers at the Dayton Stagecoach Inn south of Bouton. Archaeologists will be completing a survey of the yard surrounding the Inn and are hoping to definitively prove or disprove the theory that an underground tunnel exists on the property. Volunteers are welcome and needed to help with this effort. Wear weather appropriate outdoor clothing and bring your own gloves (although we do have extras) and any equipment you personally want to use. Otherwise, we have shovels, screens, etc. Please contact the Dallas County Conservation Board office about volunteering. Your help is needed! 

         Reservations are requested for this event although drop in visitors are welcome. To register or find out additional information please contact the Conservation Board Office between 8 am and 4:30 pm at (515) 465-3577.
