Digging into history

An archeological investigation is underway at a tiny building behind the Plymouth Center for the Arts. Historians believe the 18th-century structure at 11 North St. might have originally been used to house slaves owned by George Watson, a wealthy merchant who once had an estate there. Archeologist Craig Chartier was scheduled to begin working at the site April 25 and will continue to do so as weather permits.
