High School Students at work at Jay Heritage Center

the link above is to a photograph of artifacts found and organized by summer students working at the Jay Heritage Center. Rye, New York.

The Jay Property in Rye is the boyhood home of New York State’s only native Founding Father, John Jay (1745-1829).Jay was the first Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court.

Six local high school students from Rye Country Day School are working at the Jay Heritage Center through this week for their Senior term community service project. Their projects include organizing archaeological artifacts previously found at the site for use and demonstration to JHC summer campers. They have also started a new archaeology dig of their own at the site supervised by Dr. Eugene Boesch.
