Abstract:

Approximately 1460 acres of Booth Mountain area in the Fort Carson Military Reservation were surveyed and its archaeological sites evaluated for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places in the summer of 1995. A total of 35 archaeological sites and 78 isolated finds were identified. These comprised 23 prehistoric aboriginal sites, 8 historic linear features fence, road, corral, 1 historic habitation, 2 stone features of unknown origin, and 1 multiple-component site that consists of a prehistoric lithic scatter and historic road and quarry. Of these, 12 are recommended as being eligible for nomination. The sites are important for the light they shed on prehistoric and historic occupation not only of the Fort Carson Military Reservation but also of south-central Colorado.
