Preliminary Results of Data Recovery Investigations At the Proposed National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA), City of St. Louis, Missouri.
Archaeological data recovery investigations were conducted during the summer and fall of 2016 on selected portions of the proposed 99 acre NGA tract in the City of St. Louis, Missouri. This neighborhood predominately was occupied by German immigrant families, with Irish immigrants on the southern portion, and later the children of these immigrants. Throughout time, the community remained relatively stable with middle class business owners on the east and west ends of the blocks, and working class families renting flats or homes in the middle of the blocks. These investigations resulted in the identification of 300 features, which consisted of building remains and yard features. The types of yard features exposed will be discussed and some of the artifacts used by the residents between the 1850s and 1950s.
