Cutltural Resources Survey of the Stono View Tract

Author(s): Jason Ellerbee

Year: 2005


In August 2005, Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted a cultural resources survey of

the 51.2 hectare Stono View tract, located on Johns Island, Charleston County, South Carolina.

This survey included a background review and the systematic excavation of shovel tests at 15 and

30 meter intervals across the upland portions of the project tract. All dirt roads on the tract were

visually inspected.

No extant buildings or structures are located on the project tract. Three houses (297 1384,

297 1385, and 297 1386) greater than 50 years of age are located adjacent to the Stono View tract,

all three were recommended not eligible the NRHP (Fick et al. 1989). Investigators identified two

archaeological sites (38CH2069 and 38CH2070) during the cultural resources survey of the Stono

View tract. Archaeological site 38CH2069 is a diffuse subsurface scatter of Pre-Contact ceramics

attributed to an unknown Pre-Contact occupation. Site 38CH2070 contains a light subsurface scatter

of nineteenth century Post-Contact artifacts. We recommend sites 38CH2069 and 38CH2070 not

eligible for the NRHP. No further management of these sites is warranted.

General Note: Project Summary and Management Recommendations: Archaeologists identified two sites (38CH2069 and 38CH2070) during the cultural resources survey of the Stono View Tract. These sites lack the potential to contribute meaningful information concerning the Pre-Contact or Post-Contact occupation of the project tract or region beyond that recovered to date. We recommend 38CH2069 and 38CH2070 not eligible for the NRHP. No extant buildings or structures are present on the project tract. No historic properties are recorded on or adjacent to the project tract. Further management consideration of the Stono View Tract with regard to cultural resources is not warranted.
