Abstract or Summary
  • This study is an archeological testing report for the Willamette Mission Hospital Site. Landform analysis, photointerpretation and historical research were integrated with anthropological theory for this study. The site is an invaluable data base to further the study of human adaptability and cultural change. It should provide an excellent context for the entire site usage period (1837 to recent). The archeological record confirmed the site's significant place in Pacific Northwest history. The Willamette Mission Hospital site was the location of the first American political meeting, the first American hospital, the first American smithy in the Northwest and the first home of an elected provisional governor of the Oregon Country. A working hypothesis was developed during this study that provides a ranking system for determining whole brick chronologies. A diagnostic tool was also developed for interpreting cultural depositions through the analysis of window glass shards. This study also employed a historic typology that provided a base to project test unit placement by cultural categories present in the various cultural segments of the site (subsites).
