Artifacts from the Features

The Five Points site yielded a trove of more than 850,000 artifacts, only some of which are depicted here. On September 11, 2001 the collection was in storage at GSA’s archaeology lab in the basement of 6 World Trade Center pending relocation to a permanent repository. Sadly, these artifacts were all destroyed with the exception of a few select items, including the Father Mathew teacup, that were on exhibit elsewhere at that time.
