Testing was undertaken in November 1982 of two sites on State Highway 6 between Hearne and Bryan in order to determine site depth, cultural context, and archaeological significance. Archaeological Site 41RT128 was typified by numerous bone fragments of Bos species, and Site 41RT129 was evidenced by a lithic scatter on a sandy hilltop on the south bank of Pin Oak Creek.

Testing indicated that Site 41RT128 was a late nineteenth century farm site and Site 41RT129 was a prehistoric lithic manufacturing site and possible campsite. Because of the depth and nature of these sites it was determined that no further work is warranted.
