The work was carried out for 26 sites; these include 8 pre-Contact and 18 historic sites. As a result, 10 historic sites are recommended eligible for the National Register. These sites include 3 historic farmsteads, a CCC camp and an industrial mill complex in Winchendon (WIN-HA-01, WIN-HA-03, WIN-HA-05, WIN-HA-06, and WIN-HA-12), and 2 rural mills and 3 industrial mill complexes in Templeton (TEM-HA-03, TEM-HA-04, TEM-HA-05, TEM-HA-06, and TEM-HA-08).
