Data Recovery Excavations at Dublin/Richmond Plantation, (Sites 9BN44, 9BN174, 9BN177), Bryan County, Georgia


Proposed development at the Ford Plantation L.L.C. will impact archaeological sites 9BN44, 9BN174, and 9BN177 (Dublin/Richmond Plantation). Archaeological survey (Wapora 1983) and testing (Whitley et al. 1999) investigations determined these sites contain significant archaeological research potential. Sites 9BN44, 9BN174, and 9BN177 are located within the Henry Ford National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) District (listed under Criteria B and C). These archaeological sites were also recommended eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) under Criterion D. The Georgia Historic Preservation Division (GHPD) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Savannah District, concurred with the recommendation.

In June 2000 the USACE, the GHPD, the Ford Plantation L.L.C., and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), calling for Phase III archaeological data recovery excavations at Richmond Plantation prior to land altering development in the area. Proposed development will adversely affect all three sites. This report is presented in compliance with stipulations in the MOA to mitigate adverse effects to these sites. These data recovery investigations are conducted in accordance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA, as amended).
