Year of Publication

A cultural resources survey was conducted on a 16.6 ha tract of Lock and Dam Park, Floyd County, Georgia, during the period of 24 to 26 April, 1985, for the Rome-Floyd County Recreation Authority. The park is located at the site of Mayo's Bar Lock and Dam, which was constructed in the early part of the twentieth century as a part of the Corps of Engineers Coosa River Navigation Program. The survey identified eight cultural resources. Three prehistoric sites were found to contain preserved cultural deposits and were considered eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. One disturbed prehistoric sites was not considered eligible for nomination. No determination of eligibility was made for three historic sites which appear to be part of the Mayo's Bar Lock and Dam complex and one prehistoric site that lies primarily outside the park. The sites that are considered eligible to the National Register of Historic Places, 9Fl(SAS)2, 9Fl(SAS)3, and 9Fl(SAS)4, could be impacted if planned park projects are implemented. The remaining sites will not be disturbed by presently designed projects.
