Summary

This report is a Maryland Inventory of Historic Properties Archeological Site Survey, Basic Data Report for the site T8, 18CH220. This site is located on Cedar Point Neck 200m northeast of a Radio Tower, 2 miles northeast of the end of Blossom Point. It lies in a grassy area. The site was discovered by trenching associated with the placement of a utility line. No structural or other features were noted, the site being characterized by a highly disturbed diffuse scatter of metal, brick, glass, ceramic, and shell fragments.

This scatter of historic artifacts was discovered when a trench was dug to lay a utility line. Metal fragments including a pair of tongs, chain, and square nails, glass fragments, porcelain sherds, gray, white, and burgundy stoneware container fragments, and brick fragments were noted. Artifacts suggest a Late 19th to Early 20th century occupation. The scatter probably represents the disturbed remains of a dump or former house or outbuilding. It has been indicated that this site was a farm house and tobacco bam owned by George Sprigs and John Bowman.
