In March 1977, a contract was effected between the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio (CAR-UTSA), and the Fort Worth District Army Corps of Engineers to conduct an archaeological and historical survey of Fort Sam Houston and its south-central Texas properties. This contract (DACA 63-77-6-0081) is part of an overall Environmental Impact Statement required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1959, implementing Department of Defense Directive 6050.1 and Army Regulation AR 200-1.
The survey was designed to provide an inventory and evaluation of rapidly disappearing archaeological and historical resources and to evaluate impacts and effects of planned activities on these resources. Where warranted, individual sites or districts were to be nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.
