Abstract

Under a contract with the Tennessee Department of Transportation, the Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, conducted historical and archaeological documentation of the Kyker Mill Dam on Big Limestone Creek, Washington County, Tennessee, in October, 1984. The objective of the research was to evaluate the historical significance and archaeological potential of the site in order to assess the eligibility of the site for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The research was predicated by proximity of the remains of an early mill dam adjacent to a condemned steel truss bridge over Big Limestone Creek; construction of the replacement bridge was projected to have an impact on the mill dam remains.
