Digging into Parishville's History

Listen to this story
A team of historians from the New York State Museum has uncovered a blacksmith's shop and wagon shop in St. Lawrence County. The tiny hamlet of Parishville Center has been a hotbed of historical research this summer. Archaeologists have unearthed horseshoes, nails and the fragment of a clay pipe. Nothing earth-shattering, but project leader Marty Pickands told Todd Moe that finding the remains of a 19th century frontier blacksmith's shop is intriguing. Pickands says two centuries ago, Parishville Center was a small industrial site.
