Phase 1 cultural resources inventory was conducted in the summer of 1973 by UND. In 1977 the University of Minnesota conducted a follow-up investigation of the area to be affected by the Roseau River modifications. In the second study a prehistoric occupation site Vistad was given a second legal location, an additional site Ojibwa cemetery was discussed, and two additional burial mounds were recorded in the Olson Mound Group. University of North Dakota Archaeological Research UNDAR aspired to locate, identify, and map the three sites discussed in the 1977 Minnesota report with the following results 1 the Ojibwa cemetery was located and plotted on the Corps map in relation to the proposed modification of the Roseau River 2 only two mounds in the Olson Mound Group could be located and mapped and these are believed to be the remains of historic structures and 3 the Vistad site was located and considered to be ineligible for nomination to the National Register. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has modified channelization plans of the Roseau River to avoid the Ojibwa cemetery and the Olson Mound Group. Avoidance of the Vistad site is not necessary.
