Abstract : This report details the results of a literature search of three possible historic sites and a Phase I field survey of eleven district Project Areas in and adjacent to the city of Rochester, Olmsted County, Minnesota. The literature search included state, county, and city records, monographs and secondary sources, primary documents and records, and photographs in the city of Rochester, the Minnesota Historical Society, and the Olmsted County Historical Society. The majority of the Project Areas have been heavily disturbed by urban development and natural erosion and deposition. Archaeological potential, on the whole, is low. The proposed levee designated for Project Area 1 will run between structures which comprise a National Register of Historic Places site. According to Corps sketch maps, this levee, as currently planned, will destroy one of the stone structures entirely. Relocation of the levee is recommended.
