Tree dedication at The Castle

ROBB DeCAMP Special to the Times

Scott Britton, director of The Castle, speaks during a tree dedication ceremony Thursday at the Marietta attraction. A new maple tree was planted in the former location of one of the site’s “witness” trees after the tree that had been there since The Castle’s construction had to be removed for safety reasons. While working at the site, pieces of 19th century pottery was discovered, along with a possible underground kiln.
