Site Looking North Site Looking South

The Taylor Site is located at the beginning of the Coastal Plain and is situated on a flat, low-lying river terrace which has been subjected to floods of great magnitude. As a result, the site has experienced a small accumulation of silts, clays, and fine particles of sand which have been successful in covering ancient aboriginal occupations. The cultural remains found at the Taylor site represent a considerable span of time and form a near complete sequence of occupation for the past twelve thousand years. The sequence begins with Paleo-Indian and extends into and through the Archaic and into the early Woodland tradition. Listed in the National Register November 21, 1974.
