Summary

In December 1997 and March 1998, St. Louis District personnel visited the Arizona Army National Guard (AZARNG) Headquarters and the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office in Phoenix, and the Arizona State Museum in Tucson to research archaeological and historic buildings survey work conducted on federally owned or federally supported AZARNG facilities in the state. This document reports the history of cultural investigations on AZARNG facilities, lists archaeological sites and historic buildings recorded within facility boundaries, discusses historic contexts and predictive models, and provides a list of Native American tribes that may be culturally affiliated to archaeological collections recovered from AZARNG facilities. To date, 118 cultural properties, including prehistoric and historic archaeological sites, have been recorded on Florence Military Reservation, 68 on Camp Navajo, possibly one historic archaeological site has been recorded on Buckeye Training Area. Two historic structures have been recorded on Papago Park Military Reservation, one archaeological site has been recorded on Safford Training Area, and eight isolated finds have been recorded on Silver Bell Army Heliport. Historic buildings have been inventoried for Camp Navajo and Papago Park Military Reservation. No cultural properties located on AZARNG facilities have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but one property has been nominated, 64 properties are eligible for nomination, 48 properties have been determined potentially eligible, no determinations have been made for 15 properties, 64 properties have been determined not eligible, and there was no information for eight properties. The extent, nature, and location of archaeological collections recovered from work conducted on AZARNG facilities will be determined in the second phase of this project, to be completed during Fiscal Year 1999.
