Appraisal of the Archeological Resources of Fondulac Reservoir and Farmdale Reservoir, Tazewell County, Illinois
Author(s): Richard P. Wheeler
This report documents preliminary investigations of the archaeological resources of the Fondulac and Farmdale Reservoirs made by the River Basin Surveys, Smithsonian Institution, between March 21 and 25, 1949. The District Engineer's Office, Corps of Engineers, at Chicago, Illinois, furnished maps to facilitate the work and some time was spent in consultation with local residents.
The surveys were made in order to discover any archeological remains in the areas to be flooded by the dams and to determine whether there are sites of major importance that should be excavated prior to the utilization of the reservoirs as temporary storage pools.
Included in this resource is a brief historical overview of the site and its location.
