Center for Archaeological Research




This reconnaissance-level cultural resources survey of 1900 acres in northern Bastrop County, including a small area in Lee County, Texas, was accomplished by the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, in July 1980. City Public Service (CPS) of San Antonio has proposed a lignite mining project in the area, and this represents the first attempt to determine the nature of the cultural resources and the problems they might present in developing the lignite deposits. Prehistoric resources in the primary area were scarce and of limited significance, but three sites on the west side of the area are considered to be of high potential and may fall within the CPS area of interest. Four historic sites were recorded, eventually, and specific recommendations were made for each. Recommendations were made for future investigations in the area. Where possible, comparisons are made between the present survey and an intensive study, conducted by the Texas Archeological Survey, of the nearby Camp Swift area.
