Abstract : Field work for this project consisted of a cultural resource inventory of 842 acres reevaluation of four previously recorded sites, and evaluative testing of site 5EP2524. The cultural resource inventory resulted in the location and recording of 16 archeological sites and 11 isolated finds, dating from the Late Archaic (1000 BC) to the Historic Period. The archeological site tested included a sparse surface artifact scatter, a historic road, and 21 boulder features. Test excavations showed that the boulder features, with three exceptions are of military origin. Two boulder alignments are historic and predate the military period, while a third feature may be of prehistoric origin. The earliest military artifacts found within the features suggest early 1960s use.
