A team of high school students from Huntingtown High School (HHS) who researched a mid-19th century privy pit as part of an archeology project with Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum (JPPM) and discovered a wealth of Civil War-era household items, was recognized yesterday with a 2014 Maryland Preservation Award from the Maryland Historical Trust.
