Vinings Historic Preservation Society has engaged the services of archaeologist, Garrett W. Silliman, of Terminus Archaeological Research, to conduct research at the historic Pace House on Paces Mill Road. Garrett will conduct field investigations, in association with Georgia State University, using remote sensing to detect potential archaeological features and artifact signatures on the property.
Garrett began the project at the beginning of December using a magnetometer (ground penetrating radar) and he plans to excavate areas where anomalies were detected.
Vinings Historic Preservation Society is very excited about this project and they hope Garrett and his team will “unearth” some interesting findings. If you are in the area of the Pace House and see Garrett in the yard, feel free to take a moment to stop by and speak with him!
