An archaeological survey was conducted along Leon Creek from Bandera to Babcock roads from July 15 through July 24, and September 14 and 15, 1998, by the Center for Archaeological Research, University of Texas at San Antonio, for the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department. Three newly identified prehistoric sites were documented within the project area. Sites 41BX1301 and 41BX1303 are not recommended as being eligible for State Archaeological Landmark status nor are they recommended as being eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places due to the paucity of materials present and to the secondary context in which they were found. The third site, 41BX1302 is located on a T1 terrace of Leon Creek and represents an intact deposit comprised of at least two components, an upper deposit and a buried component. Looting and erosion are disturbing this site and a course of action is strongly recommended to halt the destruction of 41BX1302. It is recommended that 41BX1302 has the potential for State Archaeological Landmark status and for listing in the National Register of Historic Places and that this site should be avoided during the construction of the Leon Creek Greenway. If complete avoidance of 41BX1302 is not possible, testing for site significance is recommended prior to ground-disturbing activities.
