Archaeological Investigation of Historic Blocks 406 and 451: The Main Gate Monitoring and Data-Recovery Project, Tucson, Arizona
Author(s): Matthew A. Sterner
This report details construction monitoring of AZ BB: 13:445 (ASM) and data recovery on discovered features by Statistical Research, Inc. (SRI). The site includes portions of two city blocks, known as historic Blocks 406 and 451 (based on designations used on Sanborn Fire Insurance maps), known to have been occupied since at least 1902. The project area was being prepared for the construction of the Main Gate Center office complex and accompanying multilevel parking facility. Following an initial survey of historic Block 451 by SRI, conducted in March 1994, further work in the form of monitoring and data recovery was conducted on both that parcel as well as the adjacent block to the north, historic Block 406. Monitoring was restricted to observation of the earthmoving activities performed by the construction crews, with data recovery limited only to those areas where features were identified.
