This site is located on the north bank of the Potomac River, one mile east of Upper Cedar Point, and two miles east of the mouth of Nanjemoy Creek. It runs along the coast for half a mile and extends inland for as much as 35 feet, though it usually is confined to a variable 10-20 foot wide strip. The shoreline in this locale apparently has stabilized such that the former wave cut cliff line has been revegetated.

This site consists of a two-story brick structure built c. 1800-1820. It is of rather simple Federal styling, with corbeled eave cornices, flush end chimneys, and a three-bay facade. At one end of the house there is a one-story frame wing that incorporates an early (probably original) and formerly detached kitchen. Although altered in recent years, it retains its large, exterior end chimney. The house stands on property owned by the Society of Jesus from 1649 to 1980, and was possibly built as a...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: system user

This shell midden consists of approximately 8 acres. Four stps placed within this area recorded depths between 20 and 30cmbs. A rhyolite flake was found in one of the stps within the midden area. A small quantity of oyster shell was recovered in three stps along the cliff. Prehistoric material distribution (including one non-diagnostic ceramic sherd) was thinly scattered throughout most sections of the test area, which extended some 400m further southwest from the oyster shell...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: system user

Originally mapped by Judge Graham and later documented by Wilke and Thompson, this is the small remnant of what may have been a larger shell midden. The top has been plowed and the western edge eroded. No artifacts or vertebrate faunal remains other than bits of charcoal and fire-cracked rock were noted by Geo-Recon in 1980. Radiocarbon dates obtained for the basal and immediate sub-plowline portions of this site indicate a Terminal Archaic or Early Woodland date. This site was noted to...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: system user

This site was first recorded by Wilke & Thompson in 1977 as a thin scattering of oyster shells confined to plowzone, and a shell-filled pit found eroding out of a bank. MAAR Associates conducted a Phase I in 1993, noting three distinct shell deposits in this area, and recommending increasing the recorded size of the site from 100 square feet to an area measuring roughly 615x60m. They found a scatter of 7 quartz and quartzite flakes, 1 hammerstone, and 3 fire-cracked rocks. In February, 1999,...


Archeological Site Survey, Basic Data Report, BPI_0522, N.D. (2018)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: system user

Originally mapped by Judge Graham and later documented by Wilke and Thompson, this oyster shell midden is being actively eroded by waves on Nanjemoy Creek. The midden surface has also been highly disturbed by disking and blading. Numerous piles of surplus or discarded test equipment are being stored on the midden. Radiocarbon dated at 2220 +/- 50 BP, this site is attributed to the Middle Woodland period. Supporting this cultural association is the presence of Mockley ceramics (three sherds). The...

This oyster shell deposit was first mapped by Wilke and Thompson (1977). The site covers approximately 7 1/2 acres and is characterized by densely packed shells to 3 feet in thickness. According to the 1937 aerial coverage (ASCS Frame AHU-2-118), portions if not all of this site have been plowed. This site is separated by a small valley and marsh system from site 18CH157 which is situated immediately to the south. A successional stand of pine and open grassy areas now cover the site. No...

This historic site consists of the bulldozed remains of a house and well site as well as a broad scatter of artifacts along an adjacent hillslope. The hillside dump which laps down into an adjoining marsh contains molded glass bottles and jars, wide mouth canning jars, assorted other glass bottles, and a shoe. A concentration of early 20th century bottles lies at the north end of this debris scatter. Ceramics include 1 piece of a stoneware container and 4 pieces of a white porcelain plate with 2...

This shell midden was originally recorded by Wilke and Thompson. The site covers approximately 4 acres and consists of scattered to dense whole valves of C. Virginica. The periphery of the site has been disturbed by an access road and bulldozing activities. The deposit varies in thickness but was revealed by probing to be at least 15" deep. A complete surface inspection of the site revealed numerous flakes and chunks of quartz and quartzite as well as several sherds of Potomac Creek ceramics....

Blossom Point, located at the end of Cedar Point Neck in Charles County, Maryland, is occupied by the U.S. Government as a testing facility under control of the Army Material Command. Beginning in 1942, it was leased from the Society of Jesus by the Harry Diamond Laboratories (HDL). At that time, the property, a former Jesuit tenant farm, contained a brick house as well as various outbuildings. Today, only the dwelling commonly referred to as the Ballast House remains, although its survival is...
