The Historic Preservation Trust of Berks County (HPTBC) invites you to join us at the Mouns Jones House in Morlatton Village to learn about the exciting archaeology projects going on there. A continuation of our 3rd Saturday programs, this event will consist of various demonstrations and activities and take place primarily at the Mouns Jones House.
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 numerous archaeological excavations throughout the year at the property and has uncovered numerous artifacts over the years relating to the history of this important structure. The Mouns Jones House is the oldest standing building in Berks County. The Amity Heritage Society will also have an exhibit.
