Center for Archaeological Research




In early 1983, an archaeological crew from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, conducted a survey and testing program at site 41 OM 65 on the Valenzuela Ranch in Dimmit County, Texas. The results of the field work, analysis of artifacts recovered during restoration of a stone house on the site, and archival research in Dimmit, Webb, and Bexar Counties are reported. Conclusions are drawn as to the ranch's original and subsequent ownership, the approximate date of construction of the house, and its various uses through the years.
