Abstract : This report presents findings of investigations conducted at site 11- Ri-515 at Fisherman's Corner North Campground in Rock Island County north of Hampton, Illinois. The Rock Island District Corps of Engineers is proposing campground improvements of Fisherman's Corner North Campground which may impact this site. Therefore an evaluation of the potential of site 11-Ri-515 to be included in the National Register of Historic Places is required. Three backhoe trenches were placed in proximity to positive auger tests from the Phase I investigation. Two test units were placed in one trench below the post- settlement alluvium (PSA) and excavated an additional 100 cm below surface. This investigation has confirmed findings which determined that the site was not eligible for inclusion into the National Register of Historic Places.
