MAS Lecture | Pioneer Farmers of Pleasant Valley

Tim Bennett
Thursday, November 19, 2020
7:30-9:00 PM
The Warners arrived in Michigan in 1837 as pioneers from Livingston County, New York. The site dates to 1841 with the purchase of an 80-acre parcel by Timothy Warner. Members of the family were involved in a variety of capacities within the community such as assisting in naming and organizing the township, holding government positions, operating a gristmill, and serving in school and church activities. The farm expanded to nearly 500 acres by the 1870s and parts remain in the family to this day.

Sixth generation descendant Tim Bennett will discuss the results of thirteen seasons of archaeological excavation along with supporting genealogical and historical research. The nearly 180-year-old sesquicentennial farm is a Michigan State Historic Site and the extant 1855 Greek Revival home is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

This lecture is sponsored by the Michigan Archaeological Society.
