At Crown Point, unearthing the drama of French history in the North Country

Listen to this story
As part of the Lake Champlain Quadricentennial celebration, researchers in Crown Point have begun a new archaeological dig. The peninsula was occupied by a French garrison for a quarter-century, beginning in the 1730s. But researchers think they may have also found the site of an early village. Brian Mann visited the work site and sent this audio postcard.

Program Note: Tune in on Monday when we'll return to Crown Point for another chapter of the town's history. Jonathan Brown reports on efforts to save a local cemetery where heroes of the Civil War are buried.
