Last month we participated in the Ohio River National Freedom Corridor Conference (ORNFC) in Maysville, KY (check out the group's website: http://www.ohiorivernationalfreedomcorridor.org/ ). We engaged in a lively panel discussion about the Parker Academy Project and related themes with a large audience from all over the US. Our panel is discussed in more detail here: https://parkeracademy.wordpress.com/2016/10/03/parker-academy-at-the-2016-underground-railroad-conference/

We also set up a new exhibit at the Pendleton County Library in Falmouth, KY.The exhibit will be up through mid-December. You can expect to see artifacts from our excavations of the men's dorm and the school house as well as photos and items from the archives. The librarians have created a collection of books for all ages that relate to the Parker Academy Project themes which are displayed along with the historical and archaeological materials. Our team will host a round table discussion about the project at the Pendleton Co. Library in January or February of 2017.
