Texas Historical Commission
An eolian depression within the proposed right-of-way for U.S. Highway 281 was examined in subsurface testing by an archaeologist with the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation. Using both mechanical and manual methods, two trenches and a test unit were dug at the topographic feature to evaluate the location's potential for cultural resources. No historical or prehistoric artifacts were identified, and in the absence of archaeological materials, no further work is recommended for the eolian feature.
