The Archaeology Day program features archaeologists from Hartgen Archaeological Associates (Rensselaer NY) showing the equipment and process they use for archaeological digs. The program includes free interactive maps for families to use to chart archaeological features on the Ten Broeck Mansion’s grounds. Free mini-tours to visit key archaeological sites on the Ten Broeck Mansion’s 4 acres of grounds at 10 am, 11 am, and noon are also available. Pre-registration via the Ten Broeck Mansion’s website is recommended: www.tenbroeckmansion.org.

The ACHA continues its free family programs with its Living History Day series; the next programs are August 14 and September 11.

The Ten Broeck Mansion was built in 1798 for Abraham and Elizabeth Ten Broeck. The ACHA was founded in 1942. The mission of the ACHA is to preserve, present, promote, and interpret the stories of the rich and diverse history and culture of Albany County. Its nearly four-acre museum site includes the Mansion, gardens, and exhibit and gallery space at King’s Place.
