Archaeological testing at the former location of the Richardville/LaFontaine House recovered 3000+ historic and prehistoric artifacts and determined that the portion of the site area tested was disturbed. A mean ceramic date of 1891.1 was established for the site and intersite artifact patterning was completed. The artifact patterning confirmed the domestic nature of the site.
