The "Kennedy site" is the Athens Susquehannock archaeological site having a large longhouse and village. Historical artifacts were found at the site that relate the people who lived there to those who were were thought to have left our region earlier than this site suggests, while other artifacts relate the site to some of the earlier sites known in Athens. As result, this site and our area has been thought of by many as the birth place of the Susquehannock warriors - who would become the only tribe that the Iroquois would ever fear. Many other interesting facts about this site will be shared on this free night of education presented by the Andaste Chapter of Pennsylvania and Ted Keir. Admission: Free Admission Night!
