Summary

In May 1998, St. Louis District personnel visited the Alaska Army National Guard (AKARNG) Headquarters at Camp Carroll and the Alaska Office of History and Archaeology in Anchorage to review and document archaeological and historic buildings survey work conducted on federally owned or federally supported Army National Guard facilities in the state. This document reports the history of cultural investigations on AKARNG facilities, lists archaeological sites and historic standing structures recorded within facility boundaries, discusses historic contexts and predictive models, and provides a list of Alaskan Native Associations that may be culturally affiliated with archaeological collections recovered from AKARNG facilities. Six AKARNG training sites and 86 Scout Armories were researched for this PLS. Seven cultural resources, including archaeological sites and historic standing structures, have been recorded on Bethel, Juneau, Kotzebue, and Nome Local Training Areas. Of the 86 Scout Armories, 29 are located within a village in which the entire village has been assigned a site number. Two of these villages have been assigned two site numbers, bringing the total number of associated village sites to 31. No cultural resources have been recorded on Camp Carroll, Camp Denali, or in association with the 57 other Scout Armories. No cultural properties located on AKARNG facilities have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), but two Scout Armories are located in villages which are eligible as cultural properties for the NRHP. The extent, nature, and location of archaeological collections recovered from work conducted on AKARNG facilities will be determined in the second phase of this project, to be completed during Fiscal Year 1999.
