Abstract : The survey included a literature search, physical investigation of the project area and limited subsurface testing. As a result of the investigation three loci of prehistoric material were located within the project area as well as forty-three structures of probable historic significance. Preliminary subsurface tests in the areas of the deposits of prehistoric material revealed that two of the loci contain sites eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, it was determined that all forty-three historic structures are probably eligible for inclusion in the National Register either individually or as a historic district. Recommendations regarding these findings are that: (1) a data recovery plan be developed for mitigation of the adverse impacts to prehistoric material by project construction, and (2) intensive investigations of the historic structures within the project area be conducted at a level sufficient to completely determine their eligibility for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
