Memorial Field, Mt. Vernon, NY

Chrysalis conducted a Phase I survey of the early twentieth century, historic, athletic field complex. The survey identified the potential for Native American and historic resources. As part of the archaeological testing, attempts were made to recover original portions of The Boston Post Road (US 1) that linked the major cities in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In addition, several Revolutionary War events took place in the area that would become Memorial Field.

Excavations revealed a significant degree of early 20th century landscape modifications.
