Cultural Resources Survey of the Stratford Parcel 13 Tract


"During November and December 2008, Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted an intensive cultural resources survey of the 342-acre Stratford Parcel 13 Tract in Jasper County, South Carolina. The investigations were conducted for SLF III-Hardeeville, LLC, to provide compliance with state and federal regulations concerning the management of historic properties (i.e., sites, buildings, structures, objects, and districts eligible for or listed on the National Register of Historic Places [NRHP]) affected through development activities in the Coastal Zone of South Carolina.

The cultural resources survey included a review of land ownership and use recorded in public documents, a review of previous investigations near the tract, and the excavation of shovel tests at 30-meter intervals across the project tract. There are no survey-eligible structures within or near the project tract; therefore, an architectural survey was not necessary.

Investigators identified eight sites (38JA1044–38JA1051) and eight isolated finds (Isolates 1–8) during the survey of Stratford Parcel 13. We recommend sites 38JA1044, 38JA1046, 38JA1048, 38JA1049, and 38JA1051 and Isolates 1–8 not eligible for the NRHP. No further management consideration of these five sites and the isolated finds is warranted. We recommend sites 38JA1045, 38JA1047, and 38JA1050 potentially eligible for the NRHP. If sites 38JA1045, 38JA1047, and 38JA1050 cannot be preserved in place, we recommend that evaluative testing be conducted to determine definitively the NRHP eligibility of each site."

General Note: "The cultural resources survey resulted in the identification of eight archaeological sites (38JA1044–38JA1051) and eight isolated finds (Isolates 1–8). We recommend three sites (38JA1045, 38JA1047, and 38JA1050) potentially eligible and the remaining five sites (38JA1044, 38JA1046, 38JA1048, 38JA1049, and 38JA1051) and the eight isolated finds not eligible for the NRHP. Development of the project tract may affect the three potential historic properties (38JA1045, 38JA1047, and 38JA1050). These potentially eligible sites require preservation in place until Phase II evaluative testing can be conducted. Following testing, the sites will be determined eligible or not eligible for the NRHP. Sites determined not eligible require no further management. Sites that are eligible can be preserved in place through green spacing or complimentary uses or through Phase II data recovery investigations, at the owner’s discretion. After data recovery, sites generally require no further management. Should preservation of the potentially eligible sites (or eligible sites if any are determined such) be necessary under state or federal permits concerning the development of the tract, the owners should enter a Memorandum of Agreement with the appropriate regulatory agency(s) and the South Carolina State Historic Preservation Ooffice to ensure that these sites are managed in an appropriate fashion."
