Year: 2005


Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted archaeological testing investigations at

38CH2017 on the Beazer Bolton Tract in September-November 2004. Site 38CH2017 is associated

with a portion of the inland settlement of the former Bolton on the Stono Plantation. Site 38CH2017

contains subsurface archaeological deposits related to a former agricultural complex and a former

slave settlement. We recommend 38CH2017 eligible for the NRHP. Site 38CH2017 should be

preserved. If the site cannot be preserved, we recommend data recovery excavations at 38CH2017

to mitigate the loss of important information. Data recovery should be managed through a

Memorandum of Agreement with the Beazer Home Corporation, the State Historic Preservation

Office and the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control Office of Ocean and Coastal

Resource Management.
