Survey of approximately 3400 acres of land at Pomme de Terre Lake and 3500 acres at Stockton Lake was carried out during 1982 and 1983 in order to identify and assess in terms of National Register of Historic Places eligibility criteria all cultural resources located within portions of Public Use and Fish and Wildlife Management lands under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District. The survey resulted in the identification of 153 archeological sites. Test excavations were carried out at 17 sites which could not be assessed based on survey information alone. Of the identified sites, 30 are recommended as eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. Five sites are significant under Criteria A andor B because they relate to events and persons important in early historic settlements of the western Ozarks. The remaining 25 sites are significant under Criteria D because they contain important information for understanding human adaptive systems in the project areas.
