A dig was performed at the Theater in the summer of 2007. This photo shows the volunteer archaeological team looking for the building's footers - in the end, only one footer was found.
This bridge was built in 1999 and is designed to resemble one of the original Hyde Run bridges.
CHALYBEATE SPRING DIG: This is how the site looked before the dig started in 2011. We had no idea what to expect.

Eagle Scout Eric Kurtz (center) chose painting the smaller bridge across Hyde Run as his service project. He and his crew did a fine job! New Castle County Special Services Department supplied the paint and FOBS paid Eric $149. 75 for brushes and other supplies. (Mike Ciosek Photo)
FOBS volunteers develop an even deeper connection to Brandywine Springs while sharing their gifts with others. From providing tours of the park to visitors to being a part of the archaeological digs to contributing to learning about the park’s history and passing it on to future generations, Friends of Brandywine Springs volunteers take part in many opportunities.
