Frost Town Archaeology has been excavating the Hall Residence and Macumber Residence since 2017. This page is dedicated to the material culture that has been discovered archaeologically and put on display as part of the “Frost Town: The History and Ecology of a Ghost Town” exhibit. The exhibit was designed and researched by Natalie Klein (Brockport ’24) and Evelyn Patterson (Brockport ’24) as part of a spring 2023 paid internship with Dr. Smith.
