BOYD'S CORNER, Del. (AP) - December 10, 2008
The intersection is familiar to many as Boyd's Corner and is
named for store owner John Boyd, who emigrated from Ireland to
Delaware in 1791. The excavation is partially complete and the
findings include pottery, coins, a brick foundation, a brick drain
and a well.
The site is being excavated before DelDOT begins the
construction of extra lanes at the busy intersection.
President Ian Burrow, with N.J.-based contractor Hunter
Research, says workers have uncovered the remains of three
buildings at the site, the first possibly dating to the 1700s.
