Testing of Site 41LR92 on State Highway 19 in Lamar County was undertaken by the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (SDHPT) in May, 1984, to determine eligibility for inclusion within the National Register of Historic Places and to determine site depth, cultural context, archaeological significance and the amount of undisturbed cultural deposits. The site is located along a minor tributary of Robinson Creek which eventually feeds the Sulphur River. Preliminary determinations by the SDHPT were that the site might contain an Archaic component beneath the location of a razed 1950s farmhouse. Testing of the site indicated that the Archaic component was a minor occupation which probably had been destroyed by previous construction activities. Due to the lack of a valid archaeological context and the sparse amount of cultural material, it appears that the site does not meet the criteria for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places and no further work is proposed.
