On May 11, 2007, a team of archaeologists from the State University of New York (SUNY) Binghamton visited the Dennis Farm in preparation for a proposed interdisciplinary program at the university that will focus on the Farm's unique history and archaeological resources. Members of the Brooklyn Township community contributed to the field trip by escorting the Binghamton team to the Farm and generously volunteering to drive all the participants, on their all terrain vehicles, to the Prince Perkins Archaeological Site and the Perkins-Dennis Cemetery at the top of the hillside.
