Cultural Resources Survey and Testing of the Beach City Place Tract


From 5-9 June 2006, Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted a cultural resources survey

of the 8.75-acre Beach City Place Tract. These investigations were performed for D & N

Partnership of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The survey was designed to identify any historic

properties (sites, buildings, structures, objects, districts, or landscapes listed on or eligible for the

National Register of Historic Places [NRHP]) that may be present on or near the tract that could be

affected by its proposed development. This survey was conducted in compliance with federal laws

and regulations concerning the management of historic properties affected by development activities.

These laws and regulations include Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966

(1992 as amended).
