In November-December 2014, the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) conducted an archaeological survey of 4.3 acres of private property owned by the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW). The survey was required by the City of San Antonio (COSA) in compliance with the COSA Unified Development Code (UDC) Chapter 35.

A pedestrian survey with shovel testing and backhoe trenching was conducted in order to identify potential archaeological resources within the project area. A small prehistoric site (41BX2065) was located in the southern portion of the project area. Deposits at the site were of low density, and no cultural features or temporal diagnostics were recorded. Therefore, the CAR recommends that the site is ineligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic places (NRHP) and that future development on the project area proceed as planned.

Artifacts collected and records generated during this project were prepared for curation according to Texas Historical Commission (THC) guidelines and are permanently curated at the CAR at UTSA.
