Noble, Vergil E.
This report summarizes the methods and results, as well as the initiating purpose, of archeological
excavations carried out at the Julia Sprigg House in the summers of 1992 and 1993. That structure was
one of several extant historic buildings within Lincoln Home National Historic Site scheduled for restoration.
Limited testing confirmed the presence of intact cultural remains at the rear of the lot, but could not
confirm the survival of evidence relating to certain historic elements of the main house.
