Archeology of an Exoduster Neighborhood
National Park Service
From 1999 to 2003, the Midwest Archeological Center of the National Park Service conducted several archeological projects related to the rehabilitation of the Monroe Elementary School.
These projects have revealed detailed information about the history of the earlier Monroe School neighborhood. This information helps archeologists answer questions about larger cultural issues, such as how people in the neighborhood lived and how they integrated themselves into local, regional, and national socio-economic spheres.
Their web site presents a synthesis of the archeological projects undertaken by the Midwest Archeological Center and provides an overview of the historical and archeological records relating to the earlier Monroe School neighborhood.
