Cultural Resources Survey of the Hoopstick Island Tract

Author(s): Carol Poplin

Year: 2003


In August 2003, Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted a cultural resources survey of

the 70 acre Hoopstick Island Tract, located on Johns Island, Charleston County, South Carolina. This

survey included a background review and the systematic excavation of shovel tests at 50 and 100

foot intervals across the upland portions of the project tract. A dirt causeway on the tract was

visually inspected. The cultural resources survey was undertaken to provide information concerning

the kinds of cultural resources present on the tract and how these resources may be affected by future

use of the tract. This cultural resources survey was conducted in compliance with current state and

federal regulations concerning the management of cultural resources in the coastal zone of South

Carolina as administered by the regulatory programs of the US Army Corps of Engineers (33CRF

Part 325) and the South Carolina Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (15 CFR 930).
