The Hiscock Site: Number 20 in "What Made Genesee County Famous"
From muck to dirt, the countdown of the "Twenty-Five Things That Made Genesee County Famous" rolls right along.
Number 20 was announced this afternoon as the Hiscock Site in Byron. Holland Land Office Museum Director Pat Weissend explains:
Known locally as the Byron Dig, the site is an ongoing archeology dig in the Town of Byron. In 1959, landowner Charles Hiscock was digging a pond on his property when his backhoe pulled up a mastodon tusk. ... To date, less than one-quarter of the 52-acre Buffalo Museum of Science-owned property has been explored.
