Abstract Prince George's County adopted subdivision regulations in 2005 that were intended to ensure that archeological sites deemed significant to understanding the history of human settlement in the county be identified as part of the subdivision review process. Historic sites dating to the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries (circa 1865–1958) are one of the most common categories of resources identified in archeological surveys in the county, with over 300 examples in the Maryland Historical Trust (MHT) site files as of October 2007. However, additional investigations are being recommended at few, if any, of these sites. Still this time period witnessed many changes, including the subdivision of large plantations, significant changes in the relations of production, establishment of African-American-owned farms and communities, new technologies, transportation enhancements, and the growth of suburbia. Nevertheless, the contribution of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century archeological sites to the understanding of these changes in Prince George's County is either unknown or unappreciated.
