The Lone Pine Site in the Rocky Hill Quarry was uncovered by Dr Zariphes and his childhood friend David Cooke back in 1964. Dr Z came down to Academy Hall on this day to teach us about the 4,000 year old artifacts from the Lone Pine Site that we have displayed. Come down and see for yourself. We are indebted to Dr Z, a great friend of the Society. His guidance has been invaluable to us for holding on to the great tradition of Rocky Hill archaeology.

Oral History Project
February 7th & 14th 2017
Our Oral History project is in full swing. This month Bob Herron and I hit the road and interviewed Herb Philbrick about his WWII experiences. He had some stories to tell.
Our second interview was with Joan Tennyson. Joan grew up in Rocky Hill on a 52 acre farm. It was amazing to hear her stories of Rocky Hill living. "Quiet," she said. "Rocky Hill was so much more quiet when I was a girl."
Our Oral History project will continue with an interview once a month. We will soon have a separate page dedicated to all these wonderful stories. If you are interested in doing the project as a transcriber or if you know of someone who has a story to tell about Rocky Hill let us know.
