Archaeology tour of Silver Lake on tap for Sunday

SALISBURY — As part of Vermont Archaeology Month, researcher and author Bill Powers and retired National Forest archaeologist Dave Lacy will lead a hike to Silver Lake on Sunday, Sep. 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
On the hike Powers and Lacy will highlight the history and archaeology of the area, from evidence of Native American use and the story of the 19th century settlement, to the development of a popular hotel/retreat on the lake shore, the 100th anniversary of a power generation dam and network, and several decades of National Forest management. Powers will be armed with a collection of historic photographs to bring the lake’s history to life.
The hike will begin at the public parking lot at the Silver Lake trailhead on Route 53, south of Branbury State Park. The hike is free. Children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. Be sure to bring water, lunch, appropriate walking shoes, bug repellent and sunscreen if desired. Well-behaved (voice command or leashed) dogs welcome.
