Site 41BP369 is a prehistoric site on the south terrace above Wilbarger Creek, cut by CR 127, in western Bastrop County, TxDOT District 14. Phase II archaeological testing was undertaken at 41BP369 by the author in order to determine eligibility for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (in accordance with 36 CFR, Part 800) and State Landmark status. Testing was also conducted in order to determine cultural context, and horizontal and vertical boundaries of the site within the right-of-way of CR 127. The site within the right-of-way contains the remains of a prehistoric cultural zone of unknown cultural origin, that is primarily exposed on the surface. No diagnostic material was recovered during testing. Up to 50 ft of additional right-of-way will be acquired in the site area. Results of testing indicate that the site within the right-of-way is disturbed, that further investigations will not add to the overall regional prehistoric database, and that site 41BP369 does not meet the criteria for designation as a State Archaeological Landmark nor should be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
