Abstract : During October 1985 through January 1986, Phase I site survey and Phase II site testing were conducted for selected portions of the Lock Have Flood Protection Project area. This research was designed to discover all potentially significant archaeological resources within selected portions of the project area, and to evaluate selected resources for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. Phase I survey procedures involved pedestrian surface survey 1 shovel tests, and deep augur probes. These procedures were used to discover archaeological sites in previously unsurveyed portions of the project area and to confirm the locations and boundaries of previously discovered archaeological sites. Phase I surveys were conducted within a strip of municipal park along Water Street between Sixth and Fourth Streets, along the U.S. Route 220 and at the Bald Eagle Creek upstream tie out. Surveys were proposed for the Susquehanna River upstream tie out and for a small parcel of AM-PM Mini Mart property immediately to the east of the Lock Haven University parking lot. However, access to these latter properties was denied and/or they exhibited extensive disturbance, thus precluding effective survey.
