A literature and records search and review, pedestrian survey, and shovel testing were completed in September 1981 in the Grafton, North Dakota area. No previously recorded cultural resources sites are located with any areas proposed for flood control measures, and there are no currently listed National Register of Historic Places properties with any of the five proposed flood control plans. One previously unrecorded historic cultural resource site was recorded during conduct of the 1981 survey--Plant View Homestead. This site will be affected by measures proposed in one flood control plan. Shallow subsurface shovel tests were made at the Plant View Homestead, revealing a rubble of cobble-size concrete chunks to a depth of at least 25 cm 9.8 in.. Based on data collected during the spring 1982 revisit to the area, one Burlington Northern railroad bridge was recorded as an architecturalhistoric cultural resource site. This site lies within an area that potentially will be impacted by measures proposed in three flood control plans. Historical and Archaeological Surveys, Inc., recommends that the subsurface tests conducted at the Plant View Homestead site are sufficient to determine that this is not significant, nor is it eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places the State Historic Preservation Office has concurred with this determination, and no further work is recommended for this site.
