Fort Halifax Park: A Shared Heritage

Author(s): Amanda Rasmussen

Year: 2018


Fort Halifax Park, located in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, contains archaeological potential for both prehistoric and historic resources alike. The local community is proud of its heritage but lacks the resources and expertise to properly care and manage the property. Future development, which once seemed only a dream for the community, is now a possibility through a joint partnership involving The Friends of Fort Halifax, the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Historic and Museum Commission, DCNR, and Dauphin County. As part of this effort, numerous archaeological surveys have taken place on the Park Property, including a thesis conducted in 2013. The results of the excavation, and the efforts of the community and the partners, produced invaluable results.
