Campbell House Museum renovations reveal buried history

ST. LOUIS (AP) – After almost 80 years of operation, the Campbell House Museum is still learning about its history.

A team of archaeologists from the Archaeological Research Center of St. Louis began digging in what used to be a parking lot next to the museum. So far, the team has unearthed dozens of relics of the past: pottery, horseradish and Clorox bottles, crockery and bones (animal bones – don’t get too excited). They estimate the items came from over a span of decades – from the construction of the house in 1851 to the early 20th century.
