Abstract:

A cultural resources survey and historical documentary was undertaken at Grafton, North Dakota, to assist in planning for proposed flood control measures. During a spring 1982 revisit to the area, one Burlington Northern Railroad bridge was recoded as an architecturalhistoric cultural resource site. The documentary research conducted for, and the subsurface tests conducted at, the Plant View Homestead site are sufficient to determine that this site 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. The Railroad Bridge site is considered to have the potential for significance, since it represents what may be the only remaining structures of its kind in the Red River Valley. Recommendations concerning the Railroad Bridge site include implementation of flood control measures in order to avoid the site completely.
