Archaeological Field Reconnaissance Quakertown Recreation Area 1980
In 1980, an archaeological field reconnaissance was conducted by Dr. Ronald Hicks of Ball State University on the area affected by the proposed improvements to the Quakertown Recreational Area in Liberty Township, Union County, near Dunlapsville, Indiana. Since vegetation obscured ground surface visibility, the entire area was shovel probed at 30-foot intervals. The survey and shovel probe testing revealed no cultural material. Neither the owner of a nearby farm nor an employee at the Quakertown Recreation Area was aware of any prehistoric or historic artifacts that were found within the project area or within the general vicinity. It was, therefore, recommended that the project be allowed to proceed as planned without further archaeological assessment (Buehrig 1980).

This report represents the results of an archaeological survey of project number E1-26B and E3-604A was accomplished on September 27 and 28, 1977 for Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
