Abstract:

This document provides a tool which can be used by DARCOM and decision-makers at Tobyhanna Army Depot TOAD, PA to assist in complying with regulations and procedures relating to historic preservation Technical Manual 5-801-1, Technical Note No. 78-17, Resources Management 32 CPR 650.18-650.193, Army Regulation 420-40 36 CFR 800. It summarizes data relating to the areas environmental history cultural chronology historic and modern ground disturbances previous archeological surveys, etc. No significant archeological remains are recorded at TOAD. While extensive land disturbance has been defined for several areas at TOAD, two areas, the vicinity of Oakes Swamp and the Passion Recreation Area, are only minimally disturbed and may yield archeological resources. Remnants of the original Tobyhanna Military Reservation buildings may still exist in TOADs GDA-1 and remnants of a structure associated within the Dodge, Meggs and Dodge Co. may still exist in TOADs GDA-6. Recommendations for archeological survey include undisturbed areas near marshland and streams to identify possible archeological resources and areas near future development projects to document inferred land disturbance. Informing personnel of DARCOMs historic preservation responsibilities is also recommended.
