Abstract: This report describes a cultural resources survey on the drainage of the Elm Fork of the Red River covering 1,705 acres in Greer and Harmon counties, Oklahoma. Thirty-two new prehistoric and historic sites were found during this work and four sites already recorded were resurveyed. Five of these thirty-six sites were given a minimal test with seven 1 meter square test pits. Site locations, site functions, age, artifacts, and cultural inferences are described and discussed based on the materials recovered. Most sites were small and lie on badly eroded Permian and Quaternary badlands topography, and are not considered significant enough archeologically or historically to warrant further action. Specific recommendations are made on the few sites considered valuable in solving problems of archeological research in southwestern Oklahoma .
