I saw some construction going on in the Tin Lizzie parking lot in Deadwood. I figured they were just repairing some underground parking lot pipes. Turns out it’s a Quality Services, Inc. Archeology dig. Jana Morehouse, Operations Manager & Principle Investigator shared some information and some of their finds with me and a few other curious spectators. So far they have found a few small animal bones, and a star shaped trinket or piece of jewelry. Jana said they are hoping to find some Chinese related artifacts – (here is a good article on the Chinese Influence in Early Deadwood). They will continue work until the ground freezes. Eventually, around 16 individual holes will be randomly dug throughout the parking lot. Down the road, the parking lot will be home to a brand new hotel being built by https://www.livhotelgroup.com/.
