The archeological investigation of the John Fox House (38LX3l) was sponsored by the Lexington County Historical Society and undertaken by the Institute of Archeology and Anthropology, University of South Carolina. The exploratory excavation behind the John Fox House was made to locate any significant features which might be altered or damaged by future development. The excavation was carried out during two weeks in February 1971 by Richard Polhemus and John Jameson of the Institute of Archeology and Anthropology. No work was done on the main structure which is still standing in a good state of preservation. The primary purpose of the excavation was to locate and interpret outbuildings known to have existed in the rear of the main structure.
