Testing of Site 41BU24 on State Highway 36 in Burleson County, Texas, to determine eligibility for inclusion within the National Register of Historic Places and to determine site depth, cultural context, and archaeological signbficance, was undertaken in January 1985. The site is located on a ridge overlooking Yegua Creek and extends into the creek floodplain. It has been heavily impacted by previous construction activities and the exact site limit is difficult to determine. Results of testing indicate that Site 41BU24 contains a minimal prehistoric component of unknown age which is thoroughly mixed with modern debris. Evidence recovered does not support a determination of eligibility for inclusion within the National Register of Historic Places.
