Abstract : An intensive survey was conducted in Sept., Oct., and Nov. 1978 for prehistoric, historic, and architectural properties within the Blackfish Bayou Channel Enlargement Project. Forty-six sites were inventoried during the field examination. The majority of the sites was assigned to the Woodland and Mississippian Periods, based on the identification of diagnostic ceramics. The architectural properties include isolated dwellings, farmsteads, agricultural outbuildings, and a church, all of which were constructed after WWII. Four sites are considered eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
