US Army National Guard Cultural Resources Planning Level Survey - Massachusetts
Author(s): Janet Wilzbach
In June 1998, St. Louis District personnel visited the Massachusetts Army National Guard (MAARNG) Headquarters at Camp Edwards Training Site on Cape Cod and the Massachusetts Historical Commission in Boston to research archaeological and historic buildings survey work conducted on National Guard facilities in the state.
This document reports the history of cultural investigations on federally owned or federally supported MAARNG 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 with archaeological collections recovered from MAARNG facilities.
To date, 108 historic properties, including archaeological sites, historic buildings, and isolated artifact finds, have been recorded on Camp Edwards. One archaeological site has been recorded within the Camp Curtis Guild. No cultural resources work has been conducted on Rehoboth Nike Site. No cultural properties located on MAARNG facilities have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but ten have been found eligible. The extent, nature, and location of archaeological collections recovered from work conducted on MAARNG facilities will be determined in the second phase of this project, to be completed during Fiscal Year 1999.
