Phase II of the Archelogical Dig Pictures

Here are some on site pictures of the Phase II of the archeological dig. They are all of pictures of the holes they dug, on Monday June 22, looking for historical artifacts. Since these pictures were taken, the archeologists have found a water well near the middle of the park. Hopefully the archeologists won't find anything too important that it will prevent us from building the park.

Dreaming of a Community Park

Newburgh residents and community members have been dreaming for years of a public park to be built in the empty lot at the corner of Grand and South Streets in Newburgh. Here are some preliminary design drawings from 1998 and April 2008 for the park, now called, "Tyrone Crabb Park":

Just Getting Started

Before we begin construction we have to do an archaeological dig to make sure there are no major historical artifacts under the site of the prospective park.
