Abstract : An intensive cultural resources survey of approximately 30 acres and the National Register Evaluation of two archeological sites were conducted along the west bank of Lake Francis Case. The work was carried out under contract with the River Ranch Developers of Sioux Falls, South Dakota by the State Archaeological Research Center, Rapid City. The intensive survey did not locate any new cultural resources. No previously recorded sites were within the survey boundaries. The proposed River Resort project will not affect any cultural resources within the surveyed area. The investigation of 39LM253 determined that the site was not located within the present River Ranch Resort project boundaries. The project will have no effect on the site. 39LM200, an historic site, was examined through literature searches, informant interviews, survey, mapping, excavation, and artifact analysis. The site is considered as not eligible for inclusion onto the National Register of Historic Places.
