Abstract : Descriptions of the archaeological, architectural, and historic resources to be affected by construction of the proposed channel for West Fire Prairie Creek, Jackson County, Missouri, are presented. The archaeological, architectural and historic surveys were intensive. Pedestrian reconnaissance and interviews with local citizens resulted in the location of two archaeological sites, 25JA185 and 23JA186, although no significant architectural or historical sites were encountered. Descriptions of archaeological materials recovered from surface collections and test excavations at site 23JA85 are presented. Based on the results of manually excavated test pits and soil phosphate analyses, it was determined that 23JA85 lies within the construction limits of the rechanneling of the Little Blue River. Finally, recommendations for the preservation of archaeological, architectural, and historic resources are presented, as well as recommendations for nominations to The National Register of Historic Places.
