VCP technicians are rehabilitating the artifacts and documents from the 2002 to 2003 archaeological investigation of the Jenkins House Site (46CB41), which is located on the USACE Robert C. Byrd Locks property in West Virginia. The house, which overlooks the Ohio River, was built in 1835 by Captain William Jenkins. The archaeological investigation uncovered important features that helped in the interpretation and restoration of this historic home. The collection consists of over 80,000 artifacts and 2 linear feet of associated archives, which are being processed by the VCP to ensure their preservation for future generations.
