Journal of Northeast Texas Archeology




In 1992, the author accompanied a longtime resident of Jefferson on a tour of the city to examine historic and prehistoric sites within the city limits that might be of archaeological interest. He became aware of many of these sites over 20 years ago while growing up in the area. The condition of the sites has, of course, changed radically since that time. Enough information about the sites was revealed to indicate where it might be worthwhile in the future to do more extensive archaeological and historical research.

We began our tour at 12:00 noon on July 24, 1992. My host drove, allowing the author to take notes on the sites. The first stops on the tour were in North Jefferson, while later in the day some possible sites in South and East Jefferson were looked at. Each site was numbered chronologically as they were shown to the author; the sites were also plotted on a map of Marion County and Jefferson. The same numerical system will be used in this report.
