An Archaeological and Historical Survey of Bald Point State Park, Franklin County, Florida

Author(s): Michael Wisenbaker; Brenda Swann

Year: 2001


The CARL Archaeological Survey made four visits to Bald Point State Park. These visits occurred in December 1999 and on March 2000, June 2000 and April 2001. The first three visits were done to test and mitigate any damage that may have resulted from scheduled construction activities in the park for proposed new amenities such as storage areas, boardwalks, picnic tables, parking areas, etc. On the other hand, after specific testing had been completed on those three visits we performed some pedestrian surveys of other areas within the park, especially the northern two thirds of the tract. In particular, we examined disturbed areas such as woods roads, animal burrows and firebreaks. Our last visit to the park this year, however, was devoted exclusively to doing judgmental surveying and testing of favorable natural communities within the park to locate and inventory additional archaeological and historical sites on the property. Little would have been gained from systematic testing over the entire property, as much of it is wetlands, and some of its upland environments have proven to be marginal for human existence.
