Pharr Mounds


The Pharr Site has long been regarded as one of the most impressive archeological sites on the Natchez Trace Parkway and accordingly has been proposed for development as an exhibit-in-place. In order to provide information for its interpretation, the National Park Service carried out archeological investigations there during the summer of 1966. The fieldwork was supervised by the author.

As in the past, this project was expedited by the splendid cooperation of the Parkway staff. I would particularly like to thank the maintenance division for its help in setting up the grid system and making other aid available when requested.
