Fabry Creek (Boss Tavern) Site

A Multi-Component Site

The Fabry Creek (Boss Tavern) site is located in southern Door County. It represents a multi-component site that produced cultural material from Paleoindian, North Bay Middle Woodland and Mero Complex Oneota time periods. Carbon samples recovered from the Paleoindian component at the site produced a radiocarbon date of about 9,000 B.C.

Artifacts recovered include projectile points and knives/blades from the Paleoindian component, side-notched points and thick walled, grit-tempered pottery from the North Bay component, and decorated shell-tempered pottery and triangular points from the Mero complex component.
