The archaeological dig at the home of outsider artist James Castle turned up art-related artifacts. But it also turned up modest household items that would have been in use at the time the Castle family lived at what’s now Castle Drive and Eugene Street in West Boise. The finds include this small brown glass vaseline jar with embossed manufacturer’s stamp: “Chesebrough Manfg. Co., New York.”
