Summary

This paper will use two principle models of site formation processes to understand an emerging field of institutional archaeology that of school house archaeology. By using the mining community of Lake Valley, Sierra County, New Mexico, these two models can compare and contrast the social strata and life-cycle of two school houses that shows the history of the community from founding to the closing of the town in 1954. The existing archaeology and features of will be compared and contrasted by using the one-room schoolhouse formation model created by April Beisaw with the LaMotte Schiffer model of cultural and non-cultural formation process to understand and interpret the life history in Lake Valley. The findings from this model will then be applied to public/collaborative archaeology and presented in a new permanent exhibit. This research is important rural education in New Mexico and broaden the field of Institutional Archaeology.
