Archaeological Testing of the Proposed Phoenix Federal Building and United States Courthouse Property (TR1996-1) (PDF)
Archaeological test excavations and the monitoring of environmental testing was conducted by Desert Archaeology, Inc., at the location of the proposed Phoenix Federal Building and United States Courthouse in Phoenix, Arizona. The project area consists of historic blocks 72 and 73 of the Original Phoenix Townsite. Archival research had indicated that the area was originally settled between 1875 and 1885 and that the property had been the site of dozens of residential and commercial structures. The archival study recommended that an archaeological testing program be initiated to determine whether significant cultural resources were present (Hummert 1994).
