Abstract : The purpose of this study is to define the focus and level of historical archaeological investigations that should be conducted in areas subject to adverse impacts from the proposed Lock Haven Flood Protection Project. It is designed to provide background information on historic patterns of settlement and socio-economic organization in Lock Haven and surrounding areas, and to define relevant historical research topics and questions on the basis of this information. The ultimate objective of the historical and archaeological research is to ensure that the Project does not adversely affect significant and National Register eligible sites, features, or artifactual materials which may contribute data necessary to the investigation of important historical research topics.
