During the 1970's two distinct archeological studies were conducted in or near the Flatts.  One focused on the area immediately surrounding the Schuyler family home and included the discovery of the first Dutch Colonial habitation built by Arent Van Curler.  The other centered on the area immediately south of the farm. It focused on the evidence of centuries of Native American habitation at the site.
