Information for Archaeological Consultants


Due to limited resources, we are not able to do site file checks for consultants.  It is recommended that you make an appointment to use the Archaeological Site File in person.  Please call 517-373-1630 to speak with a staff person.

Please note that Michigan's archaeological site file data are not yet available digitally.

Because the Archaeological Site File contains sensitive information, we restrict access to the site file records. In general, access to the site file is provided to archaeological consultants, researchers, planners, engineers, and others who have a legitimate need to examine site file information for research purposes or to identify and protect archaeological sites during project planning and implementation. Please contact the State Archaeologist to inquire about access to the Archaeological Site File.


Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


We are located in the State Historic Preservation Office, Michigan State Housing Development Authority, 735 East Michigan Avenue, PO Box 30044, Lansing, Michigan 48909.

The Michigan State Housing Development Authority's Lansing office is located at the corner of East Michigan Avenue and North Hosmer Street.
