Summary

In early 1999 Southern Research completed an archaeological resources reconnaissance

survey of the Fort McAllister State Historic Site for the Georgia Department of

Natural Resources. This examination of approximately 1700 acres, which is located in

rural Bryan County, Georgia on a series of marsh islands in the Ogeechee River delta,

identified seven archaeological sites and one isolated find. One of these sites, 9Bn27

(Fort McAllister), is presently listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP),

although it was not identified as such by its archaeological designation. A portion of Site

9Bn22 is also included within the present NRHP boundary for Fort McAllister. Six other

sites were deemed potentially eligible for listing in the NRHP and additional study is

needed to determine fully their eligibility status. One site and one isolated find were considered

ineligible for inclusion in the NRHP.
