Background and Archival Research for U.S. Highay 78 Improvemetns Aiken to Elko, South Carolina

Author(s): Scott Butler; Eric C. Poplin

Year: 1992


"This report presents the results of cultural resource, background, and archival research conducted for the proposed improvements to U•S. 78 between Aiken, Aiken County and Elko, Barnwell County. This research was carried out to indicate the potential for the occurrence of archaeological sites within and near possible construction areas and to provide a context for evaluation of archaeological sites and historic buildings expected to be recorded in future studies of provisionally selected construction areas. Lists of previously recorded cultural resources and historic maps were reviewed to define localities likely to contain archaeological or architectural resources within the project corridor. No listed National Register of Historic Places properties are located within or near the project area. A number of archaeological sites have been recorded near the project corridor, and there is a potential for significant historic buildings being present, especially in towns and communities. Recommendations for managing probable present cultural resources are presented."

General Note: "The background and archival research described in previous chapters was designed to identify the nature and locations of potential cultural resources within the project corridor. No previously listed NRHP properties are located within or near the possible project corridors. One historic property (C.O. Pascalis House), however, has been evaluated eligible for the NRHP. Ten previously recorded archaeological sites are located within or near the corridor. A review of historic maps and photographs of the project area revealed the nature and location of possible historic period cultural resources. The archival research enabled the development a program for further investigations within the project corridor."
