The Summit County Historical Society of Akron, Ohio is rehabilitating the home of Civil War-era abolitionist John Brown. In April and May 2018, Kent State University archaeologists and students conducted a Phase I evaluation of an area next to the house in order to evaluate the potential risk for disturbing historic material during installation of an electrical line. Here, we report on our excavations and the recovered artifacts.
