Archaeological Investigations for Buried Fuel Line to Main House

Part of the Ossabaw Island project

Author(s): Ronnie Rogers

Year: 2001


Wildlife Resources Division notified the Archaeological Services Unit of Historic Preservation Division of plans to install an above ground fuel tank with a buried pipe providing service to the Main House (Mrs. West's residence) at the north end ofOssabaw Island (Figure 1). There are two proposed locations. The preferred DNR location places the tank near the location of a buried tank now in place about 100' west of the Main House. Mrs. West has suggested an alternate location: near an outbuilding about 150' south of the Main House. Ossabaw is known to have numerous archaeological sites, including prehistoric sites, sites dating to the Spanish Mission period, English Colonial sites, Plantation period sites, and more. Due to the archaeological sensitivity of the area, we made a site visit to the island, where we examined both routes.
