Cultural Resources Assessment for the Fort Lowell-Adkins Steel Property within Historic Fort Lowell, Tucson Pima County, Arizona (TR2008-8)
By J. Homer Thiel, M. L. Brack, Tyler S. Theriot
A cultural resources survey of the former Adkins Steel property indicates the visible presence of six or possibly seven historic buildings associated with Fort Lowell (1873-1891). Another building is represented by subsurface foundations. It is very likely that additional subsurface archaeological features are present associated with the fort occupation, the subsequent use of the property as a tuberculosis sanatorium, and by the Adkins family. In addition, the Hardy site, a prehistoric Hohokam village, extends into this area, and associated subsurface cultural resources are likely to be present. All ground-disturbing activities should be either monitored or mitigated through archaeological fieldwork.
