The Havilah Beardsley House is the site of an urban archaeology program, and the public is invited to view the site and witness archaeology firsthand. Jay VanderVeen, professor of archaeology at Indiana University South Bend, is directing the program at the historic home of Havilah Beardsley, founder of Elkhart. The program is in its second year with participation of IUSB graduate students and community volunteers. The investigation will help answer questions about the building and life in the early days of Elkhart’s history.
