19th century settlement uncovered (NJ)
"The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and the New Jersey Department of Transportation are sponsoring the study," said Senior Archaeologist Barbara Chi Hsiao Silber of the McCormick Taylor Engineering and Planning firm in Mount Laurel."As part of the planning process, environmental and wetlands studies have to be conducted as well as this type of survey. Our job is to look for cultural resources and make sure none of these historic things are lost or destroyed in construction."
Silber said her team uncovered portions of the Creesville settlement a cluster of small houses and farms dating back to the 19th century in the area of township-owned open space on Egg Harbor Road south of Golfview Drive near Dorado Avenue.
