We had a visit tonight from Dale Croes, archaeologist for South Puget Sound Community College and member of the Thurston County Historical Commission. He is getting ready to present a paper on the George and Isabella Bush Family at the upcoming Association for African American Historical Research and Preservation (AAAHRP) Conference in Seattle on February 5. We have some artifacts like ox shoes and butternuts that will be used as part of the presentation. Dale's co-presenters are Shanna Stevenson, Washington State Historical Society and Roger Easton, Thurston County Historical Commission.
This blog reflects the journey of Kathleen and Mark who have left suburbia to steward this historical property and transform the land back into a working farm.
