Summary

Section 110 Survey of 3,727 acres at Lake Hartwell, Hart and Oconee Counties, Georgia, and Anderson County, South Carolina, and 2,465 acres at Richard B. Russell Reservoir, Elbert County, Georgia, and Abbeville County, South Carolina.

Between 26 April and 3 September 2010, Brockington and Associates conducted intensive historic properties survey of 6,192.95 acres at two different reservoirs (Lake Hartwell and Richard B. Russell Lake) in northeast Georgia and northwest South Carolina. The archival investigation identified two previously recorded sites within the Lake Harwell survey tracts, and 17 previously recorded sites within the Lake Russell survey tracts. The field survey resulted in the identification of 47 previously unrecorded sites at Lake Hartwell, and 31 previously unidentified sites at Lake Russell. Excluding the previously recorded sites which were not relocated, this is a total of 89 prehistoric and/ or historic archaeological sites within all of the surveyed tracts. Of these, 83 sites are recommended as ineligible for inclusion in the National Register, while the remaining six sites (9EB365, 38AB132, 38AB1080, 38AB1088, and 38OC623) are recommended as "potentially eligible," pending additional evaluative testing. This ARRA-funded task order employed 40 specialists for a period of 12 months.
