During this past summer, researchers from the Illinois Transportation Archaeological Research Program conducted investigations at the DeBaun site (11MS2258) located in northern Madison County, Illinois. Mitigation was completed as part of the FAP- 310 project prior to the proposed construction of Illinois Route 67 Expressway. This work resulted in the identification and documentation of numerous historic period features, many of which contain ca. 1825–1840 material culture. Additionally, this site possessed three extant structures with early eighteenth-century ties and a repurposed mid-eighteenth-century barn. This paper will provide preliminary interpretations of the features and material culture while briefly touching on the recordation of the historic structures.
