An Archaeological Survey of East Lynn Reservoir, Wayne County, West Virginia
Part of the Archaeological Survey of East Lynn Reservoir 1964-1965 project
The East Lynn Reservoir is currently being constructed on the East Fork of Twelve Pole Creek, in Wayne County, West Virginia. This dam will be located about 3 miles upstream from the small town of East Lynn. Maximum pool after construction will be 701 feet from sea level. During the spring of 1964, the senior author made preliminary survey of the area and in the spring of 1965 the junior author conducted intensive survey and testpitting in the area to be affected by the reservoir. Generally the results were negative, that while some superficial sites occur, none proved to have much potential after testpitting.
