Abstract : An intensive survey for prehistoric, historic, and architectural properties within the Wappapello to Crowleys Ridge Channel Improvement and Scour Repair Project area located in Butler and Stoddard Counties, Missouri, was conducted in May and June 1978. The study methods included a review of published literature, a review of county, state, and federal archival sources, a cartographic review, interviews with local informants, intensive field examination, and archaeological analysis of artifact collections. A total of 54 sites were inventoried during the field survey. The prehistoric properties include sites dating from the Paleo-Indian, Archaic, Woodland, and Mississippian Periods. The historic properties include a small number of 19th century farmstead remains and a large number of 20th century sites of various types. The architectural properties include permanent dwellings, agricultural outbuildings, fishing cabins, outhouses, and sheds. Three sites are considered potentially eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Options proposed for mitigation of adverse effects include avoidance of the sites during construction, archaeological data recovery, and in situ preservation.
