Summary

The following report describes a cultural resources reconnaissance carried out in connection with the proposed upgrading of seven range areas at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Three of these areas (Ranges 6, 9 and 11, totalling 124 acres) are located in New Hanover Township, Burlington County. The remaining four areas (Ranges 61, 65, 85 and 9300, totalling 1026 acres) are located in Plumsted Township, Ocean County.

These cultural resource studies were carried out by Hunter Research Associates under subcontract to Tectonic, an architecture, engineering and planning firm based in Somerville, New Jersey.
