Abstract:

An archaeological survey was conducted for the St. Paul District, Corps of Engineers in two areas south of La Crosse, Wisconsin. The first area surveyed were two small borrow areas on Goose Island. The other region consisted of 71 acres adjacent to the transmitter building of radio station WKTY. A variety of techniques including interviews, shovel testing, soil cores, and pedestrian survey were utilized. No prehistoric and only recent historic remains were observed in these areas. Therefore, it is concluded that any future construction activities or disturbance of either area will not adversely affect either prehistoric or historic cultural resources.
