You are invited to join friends and colleagues from local archaeology, historical, community, academic, and public organizations for an evening celebration and dedication of the new City of Boston archaeology facility: the Mary C. Beaudry Community Archaeology Center, located at 201 Rivermoor Street in West Roxbury. The event begins at 6pm on the 25th of October, with a brief dedication to be held at 6:30. There is parking but we encourage carpooling.The evening will include behind-the-scenes access to our new 4,000 square foot facility, archival highlights from the Archaeology Program’s 40-year history, and a new exhibit on the 1630s James Garrett house site in Charlestown. We will also be featuring our new 2,000+ volume archaeological library bequeathed by the late Mary Beaudry, vignettes of our latest and biggest projects, and our laboratory’s technological equipment and comparative collections. Can’t make it that evening? We will be hosting a separate public open house during normal business hours and 9am ribbon cutting earlier that day with City officials. Our exhibits will be open and viewable year-round during normal business hours on the first floor of the City of Boston Archival Center at 201 Rivermoor Street.  We would also be happy to give individual tours at a later date. Please reach out to us at archaeology@boston.gov to schedule.
