Shuter’s Hill Excavation Site, behind George Washington Masonic National Memorial

101 Callahan Drive

On Halloween Alexandria Archaeology is hosting an Open House at the Shuter’s Hill archaeological site located on the property behind the George Washington Masonic National Memorial. Alexandria archaeologists will be on hand to conduct site tours and show the latest finds at this late eighteenth- and nineteenth-century plantation site.

City archaeologists will share the results of a recent electrical conductivity survey as they seek to identify the foundations of an early plantation house. Visitors will be able to help archaeologists probe for the foundations. Please wear durable clothing and closed-toed shoes.

All events are free and open to the public.

Alexandria Archaeology is a division of the Office of Historic Alexandria. The Museum is owned and maintained by the City of Alexandria.
