Abstract:

Archaeological investigations of seven mill sites in Elbert County, Georgia and Abbeville County, South Carolina were undertaken as part of cultural resources investigations associated with the construction of the Richard B. Russell Dam and Lake on the Savannah River. Historical research and archaeological reconnaissance had located a number of mill sites in the reservoir area some of which showed potential for documentation of mill architecture and motive power systems. This report describes the methods and results of seven project area sites selected by the Corps of Engineers for investigation. Significant motive power remains were documented at the Mattox and Eureka mill sites. A comparison of the reservoir area mill sites is made with other areas within the Southeast.
