Cultural Resources Survey of Hamlin Park

Author(s): Susannah Munson; Pat Hendrix

Editor(s): Carol Poplin

Year: 2002


Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted a cultural resources survey of 35.8 hectare

Hamlin Park on Rifle Range Road in the Town of Mt. Pleasant, Charleston County, South Carolina.

Hamlin Park is located west of the intersection of Rifle Range Road and Porcher Bluff Road. Most

of the tract has been selectively logged. Ditches drain wetlands which cover most of the western

portion of the tract. No known historic properties lie in or near the project tract. No cultural

resources were identified on the project tract during these investigations. Development of the project

tract will not affect any significant cultural resources. Thus, ground disturbing activities should be

allowed to proceed.
