Archaeological Survey of Beech Fork Lake, Wayne and Cabell Counties, West Virginia
Part of the Archaeological Survey of Beech Fork Lake 1973-1975 project
Under contract with the United States Department of Interior, National Park Service, the Archeology Section of the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey conducted a reconnaissance and testing for archeological values within the acquisition boundaries of the proposed Beech Fork Lake Project, Wayne and Cabell Counties, West Virginia.
Little information relating to the history of the subject area has been assembled. No comprehensive history of Wayne County has yet appeared, and that for Cabell County is primarily concerned with the growth and development of Huntington. Although many archeological sites have been recorded for nearby areas in both counties, none had been reported for the Beech Fork drainage area prior to this survey. Consequently, it was deemed important and necessary to survey tracts included in the Beech Fork Lake Project for archeological values.
