By accident, I discovered that today was Fort Hunter Day, a festival organized by Dauphin County parks and recreation at historic Fort Hunter Mansion and Park, just north of Harrisburg.

There was food, of course, tours of the mansion, arts and crafts sales, historical interpretation, kids' games, wagon rides, and lots more.

The PHMC's archeology program was digging near an 18th century ice house next to the mansion in search of the foundations of the British Fort Hunter, constructed during the French and Indian War (1754-1763). Pictured are my former cronies from the Bureau for Historic Preservation, and the Box in its primo parking spot.
