Archaeological Report on the Hutto Pond Site (MD18) in Madison County, Florida

Author(s): Michael (Mike) Wisenbaker

Year: 2015


In 1971, the Division of Archives, History and Records Management (now the Division of Historical

Resources) at the request of the Florida Department of Transportation conducted archaeological

excavations at site 8MD18 just southwest of Madison, Florida. The Hutto Pond site was discovered

during a survey of the proposed 1-10 corridor (Interstate 10 ultimately would serve as a direct link across

the southern U.S. between Jacksonville and Los Angeles) by state archaeologist B. Calvin Jones. It was

deemed potentially significant, which triggered Phase II test excavations at Hutto Pond. Unfortunately,

back then DOT would not fund the analyses and write-ups of excavated archaeological sites. More than

44 years after the fieldwork occurred there, though, an opportunity arose to complete the analysis of

artifacts by Louis Tesar and to craft a report on this highly significant but long-neglected archaeological
