The Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of The University of Texas at San Antonio undertook archaeological investigations of the gristmill and adjacent areas at Mission San Jose y San Miguel de Aguayo in San Antonio, Texas, in mid-December 1996. The work was completed in advance of work proposed for making the mill operational. The restoration required that six areas be examined: a set of limestone staircases crossing the acequia near the mill, the interior of the mill's sluice, the forebay, the floor of the mill vault, a small portion of the mill race, and a stone-lined pit that is presumed to be either a tanning or sugar processing vat east of the mill.
