Charnley-Persky House Archaeological Project

Charnley-Persky House Archaeological Project

Dr. Rebecca S. Graff's web exhibit unearths the consumer habits of the men, women, and children who lived on Chicago's Gold Coast at the turn of the 20th century. Selected artifacts recovered from excavations at the Charnley-Persky House (11CK1248) in 2010 and 2015 examine these consumer choices, locating their sites of manufacture or point of sale in Chicago and around the globe.
