Cultural Resource Survey and Evaluation, U.S. Army Training Center and Fort Dix, Volume I
The report is divided into two volumes. Volume I includes the management summary, environmental setting, prehistoric and historic overviews, and the results of the archaeological and architectural surveys.
This report presents the results of a Phase I cultural resource survey which was conducted at the U.S. Army Training Center and Fort Dix during the winter of 1982. The survey was administered by the National Park Service, Mid-Atlantic Region, Philadelphia and was conducted by the Cultural Resource Group of Louis Berger & Associates, Inc.
The survey identified three prehistoric sites from the sampled areas. These are believed to be significant because they may be representative of Late Archaic to Early Woodland Transient Camps which were part of a larger, settlement-subsistence system which involved seasonal rounds between the vicinity of the Abbott Farm Prehistoric Sites in Trenton in summer and the Pinelands vicinity in winter. In addition to the sites located, recommendations were made, based on environmental parameters, as to which areas of the base may contain additional prehistoric sites.
The historic archaeological component of the survey identified the remains of three potential 19th century farmsteads which were considered potentially significant for understanding the changing relationship of rural farmsteads to urban areas, improved transportation networks, and increases in the level of technology. Areas where the potential exists for finding other historic archaeological sites were also delineated based on the historic background research.
The architectural survey produced a listing of significant buildings on the base which included a cluster of the last remaining structures from the 1917 construction of the base. These buildings have been recommended for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. All surveyed structures were documented on Office of New Jersey Heritage and Historic American Buildings Survey Forms and were evaluated by both the National Register Criteria and the Army Manual No. 5-801-1 criteria and recommendations were made for their treatment.
