What scholars think could be on site
Recent visitors to the museum's 400 acres along the Catawba River could see evidence of the site's history, from a gold mining test pit to remnants of an old homestead located beneath power lines.

Researchers believe the site holds much more.

Two archaeologists working to track the development of Catawba society from about 1700 to 1840 say the property, sold earlier this year by York County museum leaders to a developer, could harbor secrets about human history.
