Author(s): Ralph Bailey; Brent Lansdell; Jason Ellerbee

Year: 2006


"Brockington and Associates, Inc., completed an intensive cultural resources survey of the Cypress Ridge Tract in Beaufort County, South Carolina, in December 2005 and January 2006." They "recorded 10 archaeological sites on the tract." A cemetery along with several potential and one eligible NRHP sites were found. The report states that remote sensing was used due to the possibility of unmarked graved being discovered in order to keep from disturbing them.

General Note: The Cypress Ridge tract contains several potentially eligible NRHP sites. The cemetery located within the land tract has been surveyed and mapped using walk over and remote sensing. The sites discovered during this survey are suggested to be associated with several periods of pre-contact and post-contact settlements or occupations. Brockington and Associates suggested that the sites be tested further to determine significance and NRHP eligibility.
