Fair Fountain (18CH4)


Fair Fountain is a c. 1660-1695 interior English tenant site located in an area the colonists referred to as the "forrest." Archaeological testing revealed a site characterized by a relatively low density of artifacts, including white and red clay pipes, European flint, iron nails, daub, and window glass. Large numbers of Indian-made Potomac Creek ceramics were recovered, including a vessel that appears to have been produced in a European form.
