Event Details

Illustration of curing room in butter and cheese factory

What did cheese making look like in the late 1800s, and how did commercial cheese factories change the economy and the environment? In the final lecture of 2018, archaeologist Jim Gibb will highlight the discovery of a cheese factory in Chenango County, New York, that operated from the 1850s to the 1890s. He will narrate the story of this particular factory and the people and farms around it, until—like other cheese factories in the region—it succumbed to monopolies and new technologies. Free and open to all!

Thanks to the Anne Arundel Chapter of the Archeological Society of Maryland for cosponsoring this year's archaeology lecture series! Stay tuned for our winter lectures in 2019.
