Cultural Resources Survey of the McMillian Property Fire Line in Verde Valley, Yavapai County, Arizona

Author(s): Daniel Garcia

Year: 2022


SRP Water Rights and Contracts requested that Biological and Cultural Resources (BCRS) inspect a portion of the McMillan Property, in Camp Verde, Yavapai County, to determine if any cultural resources are present and would be impacted by proposed vegetation management aimed at reducing wildfire risks. BCRS staff Daniel Garcia and Nina Grimaldi conducted the inspection on January 13, 2022. As a result of the survey, one archaeological site (McMillan-1, believed to be NA3528 or the Verde Ballcourt Site), one historic in-use structure (the 1871 Woods Ditch), one isolated feature, and one isolated artifact were identified. BCRS recommends that McMillan-1, an Arizona and National Register-eligible archaeological site subject to A.R.S. § 41-841 et seq, be thoroughly documented by a cultural resource consultant, registered with the Arizona State Museum, avoided by all ground-disturbing activity including driving, mechanical vegetation removal, fence repairs, or excavations of any kind, and that SRP not sell or lease this portion of the property for development. The other identified cultural resources are unlikely to be impacted by this project, and no additional consideration of them is necessary.
