The 3,700-acre Blue Hill Archaeological District was designated as an ACEC because it is a sensitive area for cultural and Native American resources. It is also classified as a critical watershed because of the severe erosion hazard of area soils and the negative impact they could have on cultural resources and water quality. The area was nominated to the National Register of Historic Places as an Archaeological District.
