During the excavation for Acton's new Middle Fort Pond Brook sewer project in South Acton, an extraordinary record of Native American habitation was uncovered, a record extending back over 7,000 years.
The Friends of Pine Hawk is an ad-hoc group of Acton citizens, town officials, and educators who came together in the summer of 2002 around one issue: to promote understanding of the archaeological and human story behind the great trove of Native American artifacts discovered at the "Pine Hawk" site in Acton. The “Pine Hawk” site is now recognized as one of the more significant Native American sites in New England.
The Friends of Pine Hawk are grateful to the Acton-Boxborough Cultural Council, Woodard & Curran, and the Friends of the Acton Libraries for their support.
