The Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology was formed in 1926 to:
The North Fork Chapter 29 was formally approved as an organizational member of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology on May, 23, 2004.
Chapter members include both professional and amateur archaeologists from Armstrong, Clarion, Clearfield, Indiana, Elk and Jefferson counties, an area that was not previously well represented within the state.
In 2009, the chapter was formally approved as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit charitable organization.
Chapter 29 members have assisted with excavations at the Fishbasket Site in Armstrong County and Frazier Sawmill Blacksmith Shop at Clear Creek State Park and the Scripture Rocks Mapping Project.
Our current project is the excavation of two small rockshelters within the Scripture Rocks Heritage Park that will continue in the summer of 2017. The chapter also occasionally sponsors tours, hosts state archaeology meetings and provides public programs for other organizations.
Participation by interested individuals is always welcome.
