General Note: "The cultural resources survey of the NHC Tract included background research, architectural survey, and archaeological survey. We identified one archaeological site (38CH2110) and one landscape feature during the archaeological survey of the NHC Tract. There are no structures on the NHC Tract. We identified four historic architectural resources (Resources 1968, 1969, 1970, and 1970.1) in the architectural APE. We recommend archaeological site 38CH2110 and historic architectural resources 1968, 1969, 1970, and 1970.1 not eligible for the NRHP. No further management consideration of these resources is warranted. Further management of the NHC Tract as currently designed with regard to cultural resources is not warranted."
