The Stouffer Farm is rich with archaeological evidence from its long history as a farmstead located in York County, Pennsylvania. Yet what conclusion does this evidence yield? Through this exhibit, we will draw apparent conclusions from the archaeological evidence found at the site by organizing the artifacts and textual evidence into sections. In these sections we will attempt to recreate or explain both everyday life on the farm from the late-1800s to the mid-1900s, as well as explain how the artifacts came to be where they were discovered. To better understand this everyday life, we will give background information for the site and connect it to both the greater York county area and over all shifts in American society.
