The Historic Preservation Trust of Berks County invites the public to the Mouns Jones House in Morlatton Village in Douglassville to learn about the exciting archaeology projects going on there.

A continuation of the 3rd Saturday programs, this event will consist of various demonstrations and activities and take place primarily at the Mouns Jones House from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 21.

The Society of Pennsylvania Archaeology, Chapter 21, along with the HPTBC will present the latest archaeological findings at the 1716 Mouns Jones House at a Joint Archaeological Exhibit.
