Weeks 1-5, Lodging and Meals at Sprague's Kinderhook Lodge

All students are required to be in Pike County on May 23 and the instructions will begin on May 24. New Philadelphia is about 75 miles west of Springfield, Illinois, and 25 miles east of Hannibal, Missouri. There is no mass transportation to the immediate area.

The closest town to the New Philadelphia site is Barry, Illinois (population 1,400), and students will stay at Sprague's Kinderhook Lodge, located between the towns of Kinderhook and Barry on Rt. 106. We are very grateful to the Sprague family for their generous support of this project.

Lodging and meals will be provided at the Kinderhook Lodge during weeks 1-5, and students will be transported to the New Philadelphia site every day. During the weekends students with access to autos are free to travel and explore the region when fieldtrips are not scheduled.
