Phase 1 of the Demolition of the Frank Luke Addition Project, Phoenix, Arizona - Archaeological Monitoring and Data Recovery
The Frank Luke Addition was built in 1952 as one of three public housing complexes making up the City of Phoenix East Asset Management Program (East AMP). In an effort to revitalize the City’s public housing facilities and meet goals of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of Phoenix Housing Department proposes to redevelop the Frank Luke Addition.
A portion of the Frank Luke Addition falls within the 250 foot buffer zone around the Patrick Locus, which is a portion of the Hohokam site of AZ T:12:1 (ASM), also called La Ciudad. The boundary of the Patrick Locus is based on a 1929 map by Frank Midvale that showed surface features but did not include the distribution of surface artifacts. It is likely that a mapping of surface artifacts (no longer possible because of the heavy urban development in the area) would have resulted in a larger boundary. The site also includes late 19th and early 20th century Anglo American homesteads associated with the establishment of the rural agricultural landscape that preceded the growth of the City of Phoenix. Archaeological monitoring was therefore conducted during the demolition of structures for Phase 1 of the project.
This report includes the findings of the monitoring and of data recovery conducted for an historic basement dating to the early part of the 20th century. Hohokam artifacts were observed in low to moderate numbers but no Hohokam features or midden deposits were observed in the profiles of the demolition trenches, in the excavations conducted of the historic basement, and in the profile of a single 40 m long test trench. Logan Simpson Design assisted Rio Salado Archaeology by providing the services of Mark Hackbarth to document the historic basement, and the sections under his authorship are attributed to him in the headings.
