Houston Archeological Society president Linda Gorski will talk about The Happy Hollow: An Emergency Salvage Archeology Project in Houston’s Historic 19th Century Red Light District.

For three short days at the end of January 2016 Texas Historical Commission Archeological Stewards from Harris County and members of the Houston Archeological Society participated in an emergency salvage archeology shovel testing project at a unique site in downtown Houston, Texas.  Owners of the historic Lancaster Hotel were forced to demolish two equally historic adjoining buildings to provide parking spaces for the hotel.  The owners of the hotel graciously allowed the Texas Historical Commission to examine the site before it was paved over.
