Plank Road Pottery, 906 South Main Street
9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday
Back in July, volunteers under the auspices of Steve Dasovich uncovered a French
Colonial artifact dated from the late 1700s. The fragment – called Faiense – was
produced in France prior to the time of Louis Blanchette’s death in 1793. This find
solidified the timeframe of Blanchette’s presence here in St. Charles. Who knows what
they’ll find this time?
