Abstract : In March 1994, the Fort Knox Staff Archeologist and the Assistant Staff Archeologist conducted a Phase I cultural resource survey of proposed Prichard Place Replacement project area. The area encompasses approximately 53.5 ha (132.2 acres) on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin and Meade Counties, Kentucky. The only cultural material recovered was one prehistoric isolated find. No surface evidence was found of a reported cemetery, but subsurface evidence, including human remains, may still exist. The residential standing structures in this project were constructed in 1952, and the outbuildings in 1960. It is recommended that the prichard Place Replacement be developed as proposed, except that construction activities should avoid the reported cemetery location and proceed with caution in the vicinity of the reported cemetery to prevent its destruction, if it still exists.
