Abstract : An intensive, on-the-ground cultural resources survey of the proposed Nonconnah Creek project right-of-way is reported upon in this study. No prehistoric sites were located, and no structures older than 50 years could be found. In an effort to offset this lack of survey data, information is presented that originally was acquired from sites within the Nonconnah Creek drainage that no longer are extant due to land filling, construction, and channelization activities over the past 30 years. These data are used to synthesize the culture history of the region and to compare it to adjacent regions in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi.
