Archaeological and Historical Investigations of 44PG317, An Early 19th Century Free Black Farmstead Located in Prince George County, Virginia
Part of the Phase III Investigations, Site 44PG317, Fort Lee (FL1990.002) project
This report presents the results of a Phase 3 data recovery performed at 44PG317 (the Charles Gilliam Site) in Prince George County, Va. (Fig. 1). 44PG317 was discovered in December of 1988 during construction of Route 295 in Prince George County. Phase 2 evaluations indicated that the site was owned and occupied throughout the 19th century by Charles A. Gilliam, a freed mulatto, and his descendants, Mary Ann Gilliam, Susan Gilliam, Henry Gilliam and Maria Gilliam. A number of intact features were recorded during Phase 2 along with the remains of two structures.
Based on this information, 44PG317 was determined to be eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.
