     We are pleased to share the good news that the Hope Homestead site is now listed in the Florida Master Site File. The official site number is HE668.

     The Master Site File is a central registry of archaeological sites in Florida. It describes the site's location, time period, uses and artifacts. It is used to refer to the archaeological site in reports and publications.

     Archaeologists can refer to the Master Site File to learn which Florida sites might compare to a given site they are working on. Listing a site in the Master Site File also helps protect the site by making others aware of the site's historical significance.

     So this is a small milestone for the site, it will now be known as Hope Homestead (HE668)!
