Authors: Kevin Cupka Head, Tanya A. Faberson, and Andrew V. Martin
Abstract: During recent investigations in downtown Jeffersonville, Indiana, Cultural Resource Analysts, Inc. identified intact early-to-mid-nineteenth century deposits associated with Indiana's first state penitentiary. The penitentiary was located on one acre near the intersection of Market Street and Ohio Avenue, and operated from 1822 until 1846. Excavations uncovered structural remnants and other features at this site. A large sample of faunal material and a variety of other artifacts were recovered. It is anticipated that fieldwork at this site will be completed by early spring 2013. Preliminary results of the investigation will be discussed in this paper.
35 Annual Kentucky Transportation Conference
Cultural Resource Analysts was a sponsor and exhibitor at the 35th Annual Kentucky Transportation Conference held in Lexington on January 10 and 11, 2013. Architectural historians Liz Heavrin and Trent Spurlock and archaeologists Jon Kerr and Rich Herndon enjoyed this opportunity to reconnect with many of our long-time clients with whom we have partnered on dozens of projects for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet over the years and to make new connections including several local government officials who are involved in transportation planning in their communities. We look forward to continuing to provide the essential cultural resource services that further the development of important land, air, and water transportation projects throughout the Commonwealth.
