Cultural Resources on Crow's Nest
The Crow's Nest peninsula is home to a wealth of cultural and historical resources, as an October 2005 "Phase I" archaeological study documented. This survey of only 450 acres of the 3,230 acres development site on Crow's Nest identified 47 new archaeological sites, 14 of which meet the criteria for listing on the National Registrar of Historic Places.
You can view the results of the survey below. The report has been broken down into smaller files, and may take awhile to load. In order to protect the sites, identifying maps have not been included.
