Abstract:

The study area consisted of the reef flat north of Micro Beach, and the Fishing Base Dock and channel area west of Garapan, Saipan, Commonwealth of thee Northern Mariana Islands. As a result of a literature search and visual inspection of the survey area, several objects from the Japanese, World War II, and American periods were discovered within the study boundaries. Two of these items, a small caliber Japanese antiaircraft gun and a Japanese lighthouse or channel marker, are considered potentially eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places and so may require protection from future construction activities.
