Pigeon Creek Archeological Site

Archaeological Site
Administrator's Office-San Salvador

Archaeological excavations, conducted by The Gerace Research Center (formerly the Bahamian Field Station), have shown that the peaceful, indigenous people of The Bahamas, the Lucayan/Taino Amerindians, had villages here in southeast San Salvador.

This location, examined by archeologists from the College of the Finger Lakes, once had a large Indian village. It is now an archeological site where traces of the early inhabitants' culture are seen through scattered broken clam and conch shells.

A former small settlement named after the "Creek" was also home to many locals, but has long since been abandoned with only the ruins of old houses still visible.
