Abstract : In June 1994, the Fort Knox cultural resource management staff conducted a Phase I cultural resources survey of five proposed school gymnasium tracts (Mudge, Van Voorhis, Kingsolver, Scott, and Pierce) in the Fort Knox cantonment, Hardin and Meade Counties, Kentucky. The Scott, Pierce, and Kingsolver tracts were determined to be previously disturbed in a literature review, and were not examined for archaeological resources. A Phase I archaeological survey was conducted of the Mudge and Van Voorhis tracts, recording 15Md377 in the Mudge school gymnasium tract. Site 15Md377, a late nineteenth to early twentieth century farmstead with a prehistoric component of indeterminate Cultural-temporal affiliation, is not eligible for the National Register. No additional archaeological work is recommended at 15Md377. The proposed Scott, Pierce, Van Voorhis, and Mudge gymnasium tracts are not located near any buildings over 50 years old, and therefore will have no effect on buildings potentially eligible for the National Register. The Kingsolver tract lies in a district which qualified architectural historians have recommended as eligible for the National Register. It is recommended that the proposed Kingsolver gym will have no adverse effect on this district. It is recommended that the installation be permitted to construct the gymnasiums as proposed.
