Summary

In January 1998, St. Louis District personnel visited the Washington Army National Guard (WAARNG) Headquarters in Tacoma and the Washington Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation in Lacy to research archaeological and historic buildings survey work conducted on National Guard facilities in the state. This document reports the history of cultural resources investigations on four federally owned or federally supported WAARNG 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 WAARNG facilities. Four WAARNG facilities were investigated: Camp Murray, Camp Seven Mile, Kent Armory, and Redmond Armory. To date, Camp Murray and Camp Seven Mile have been surveyed for archaeological and historical sites. Cultural resources have only been recorded on Camp Murray and consist of 130 historic buildings/ structures and four historic archaeological sites. Three of the historic buildings were considered to meet the criteria for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. These three buildings, along with an additional 11 structures, were also considered to meet the criteria for nomination to a historic district. Individually, however, the 11 additional structures were not considered eligible. Neither armory has undergone any cultural resources investigations. Although no archaeological collections were reported for the work on Camp Murray or Camp Seven Mile, the full extent, nature, and location of archaeological collections (artifacts and documentation) recovered from work conducted on WAARNG facilities will be determined in the second phase of this project, to be completed during Fiscal Year 1999.
