During the early to mid-19th century, Xenia, Indiana was an occupied town in Carroll County.  As the region grew, Xenia did not and the town was abandoned.  During the summer of 2011, the University of Indianapolis performed a siteless survey of a 60+ acre agricultural field that included portions of the abandoned town.  We used Stanley South’s Carolina Artifact Pattern to categorize data from the site.  Additionally, we used South’s mean ceramic date formula to confirm the mean dates of habitation for Xenia to be between 1840 and 1860.
