Archeological Reconnaissance of Historic Sites in the Fort Randall Reservoir Area: a Preliminary Report
Author(s): Thomas Garth
From July 19 to November 3 in 1930 a survey and excavation program was carried on to locate and if possible determine the physical appearance of historic sites which will shortly be flooded in the Fort Randall Reservoir area. An important feature of the program was to photograph the ruins and gather representative artifacts from each, to be placed in museums to help portray the site’s history.
The work was carried on for the National Park Service by the Smithsonian Institution as part of the Missouri River Basin Survey program.
This report includes a survey of Fort Randall, Handy’s Trading Post, Whetstone Agency, Brule Agency, Lower Brule Agency, Fort Recovery and Fort Lower Brule.
