Abstract : Volume II reports on historic archaeological investigations conducted to mitigate adverse project impacts identified for 13 historic properties dating from the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and determined eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. Archaeological and architectural studies were focused on 9 landowners' farmsteads and 4 tenant farmers' dwellings. Most of the sites consisted of white landowners' farmstead complexes with above average landholdings and layouts. The archaeological and architectural resources of Joe Pool Lake contain information on the evolution of an argrarian rural area near to a major urban center. (edc)
