Abstract : This report documents a cultural resources intensive survey of an approximately 13+ acre tract of land located near the City of Marion, Crittenden County, Arkansas. The tract is within the direct impact area of a proposed lake that will be part of the River Trace, Inc. housing development. At the request of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Memphis District, investigations within the permit area included a cultural resources background and literature search and archaeological intensive survey and artifact analysis, which was conducted by Garrow and Associates, Inc. under Purchase Order No. DACW6690M1111. The study area consists of an irregular parcel of land located in a relict Mississippi River channel. The are is presently situated in a swale between low ridges, and was part of Marion Lake until the early twentieth century. Properties immediately surrounding the project area are currently being developed as part of the proposed River Trace, Inc. development. A review of the Arkansas Archeological Survey state site files, Crittenden County Library, and Crittenden County Courthouse Tax Assessment Records shows that no previously recorded cultural resources were located on or immediately adjacent to the study area. Systematic surface survey and subsurface testing recovered a total of five artifacts scattered across the entire 13 plus acreage, representing recent disposal and slope wash. The survey did not record and archeological sites or other significant cultural resources. No further work is recommended.
