Abstract:

A cultural resources survey of the proposed Oneida Creek Flood Control Project in Oneida, New York was conducted in August 1981. In the course of the survey, the 1.6 kilometer long area on both sides of Oneida Creek and the approximately 450 meter long training dike area were subjected to a pedestrian survey. The project area appears to be either highly disturbed, wet, or both. Thirty shovel test units were excavated in the least disturbed areas, formerly cultivated fields. No prehistoric archaeological materials were recovered. A potentially historic structure, the Westcott Chuck factory building was discovered to be within the project area on the west side of the creek. This ca. 1870s brick building has been greatly modified on the interior, but much of the exterior appears to be original. The author suggests that no additional archaeological work should be required for this area unless the disturbance of the Westcott Chuck building is contemplated. If so, additional archival research on the building should be necessary as well as more intensive scrutiny of the building to determine the extent of the damage and modification to the structure.
