Harper's Creek Survey, Naval Air Station Patuxent River (2001.033)

Summary

This project includes photographs, distribution data, statistical analyses, and an official report of the Phase I survey at Harper's Creek, St. Mary's County, Maryland. The goal of this survey was to identify and inventory all archaeological sites within the project boundary in accordance with Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. The project area is in Maryland Archaeological Research Unit Number 9, the Estuarine Patuxent Drainage of the Coastal Plain Province. The survey was conducted by the staff of the Southern Maryland Regional Center at Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum for the Natural Resources Branch of the Environmental and Natural Resources Division of the Public Works Department at Naval Air Station Patuxent River. The project was funded through a grant provided by the Department of Defense's Legacy Resources Management Program.

Twenty-three archaeological sites were encountered, including fourteen previously unidentified sites and nine sites which were previously documented. The prehistoric sites ranged from the Early Archaic period to the Late Woodland period, and the historic sites extended from the last half of the seventeenth century to the early 1940s. Fourteen sites may potentially be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (National Register): 18ST396, 18ST472, 18ST474, 18ST475, 18ST659, 18ST747, 18ST748, 18ST749, 18ST750, 18ST751, 18ST753, 18ST754, 18ST755, and 18ST756. Additional work will be necessary at these sites to determine their eligibility, should avoidance prove impossible.
