Texas Historical Commission


Phase II cultural resources investigations at the proposed Justiceburg Reservoir in Garza and Kent counties, Texas, conducted in 1988-1989 included work at four historic sites, the recording of a previously unrecorded historic site, and development of two National Register contexts. This report documents the archeological work at the sites and presents data that resulted from in-depth research concerning the history of the use and development of these sites. In addition, the report presents two historic contexts which were developed in order to provide tools for the assessment of sites within the project area and, at the same time, to present information that could be used in future archeological and architectural surveys in the Southern Plains area. As a result of the development of the contexts and reexamination of 12 historic sites to which the registration requirements associated with the contexts could be applied, 7 of the sites were found to be eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
