Abstract : A sample archeological survey of the Perry Lake project was conducted during July and August 1979. Testing of selected sites was completed in November of 1979. The areas studied were some 20 miles of shoreline adjacent to Sunset Ridge, Paradise Point and the Perry State Park public use areas. The vertical extent of the survey was from 889 to 900 ft m.s.l. Ten previously unrecorded sites were identified and four known sites were revisited. Eleven sites were single component habitations identifiable as belonging to the Grasshopper Falls phase of the Plains Woodland. One site bore two components, Grasshopper Falls phase and a Middle Ceramic manifestation with Middle Mississippi elements, probably Nebraska phase. Two sites were not identified culturally. None of the sites demonstrated potential to meet the criteria for eligibility to the National Register of Historic places. The significant result of the survey was the location of sites on valley slopes and high terraces above the flood plain in sections of the valley where sites had not been found on the flood plain in previous surveys.
