Abstract:

During the late winter and early spring of 1986, a research team from GilbertCommonwealth Inc. completed an archeologicalhistorical inventory, pedestrian reconnaissance, and limited shovel testing for the proposed Flood Control project at Ft. Wayne, Indiana. The objective of the effort was to obtain initial inventory or impressions of the historical and archeological resources of the project area sufficient to guide future research. This review resulted in the determination that a significant portion of the project area has been disturbed and is unlikely to contain intact archeologicalhistorical resources. It was also determined that portions of the project area have escaped development or disturbance and have the potential to contain significant cultural resources. Detailed management recommendations are provided, and existing site information is listed to facilitate management considerations by Corps of Engineers personnel.
