Archeological Investigations for the Barn Relocation at Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site, St. Louis, Missouri

Author(s): Douglas D. Scott

Year: 2002

Summary

Archeological investigations were undertaken in August of 2000 in the area proposed for relocating a barn at Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site. The excavations were undertaken as part of compliance activities to determine the effect that the proposed barn relocation might have on the site. Geophysical techniques, traditional shovel testing, and limited test excavations located a substantial stone foundation and a series of piers or footers believed to be remains of an 1818 barn. The foundations were damaged during the early 20th century by various construction activities. A separate search for remains of a board fence alignment were undertaken near the Main House. This effort proved unsuccessful.
