Abstract : The Tarheel Army Missile Plant (AMP) in Burlington, Alamance County, North Carolina, includes 33 acres of land that is almost completely covered by buildings or pavement. Nearly all the acreage has been under buildings, pavement, or gravelled surfaces for at least the past 40 years. No archeological survey has been conducted on the property, and no sites have been recorded on it. Historic archeological materials may remain under the paving. An intensive archival research program is recommended to assess the likelihood that buried resources exist on the facility. This program is estimated to require 17-26 work-days, for a cost of $5000 to $7000 in FY84 dollars. Following this work, consultation with the North Carolina SHPO may recommend either (1) the filing of (and written concurrence with) a negative declaration of preservation management needs, or (2) completion of an Historic Preservation Plan. This will provide the basis for an affirmative cultural resource management program for the Tarheel Army Missile Plant.
