Abstract:

The Corps of Engineers is realigning a portion of the main line Mississippi River Levee at M-56-L, requiring the relocation of the Harlem Plantation great house. Harlem Plantation is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A multistage archeological survey research effort was undertaken consisting of magnetometer and pedestrian survey, shovel and probe testing, and test excavation. This research effort demonstrated the proposed new house area relocation corridor, yard, and house site to be free of significant historic archeological features. Relocation of the Harlem Plantation house to the proposed site is recommended.
