Texas Historical Commission


This archeological project was conducted for the City of New Braunfels, and the work was coordinated with Adam Michie in Capital Programs Management and Parks and Recreation Department director Stacey Dicke. Our work was contracted through the city’s engineering consultant, Freese and Nichols, Inc., where Leslie Boyd is the project manager.

Onsite mapping of our project area was coordinated by Steve Schultz and conducted by the Schultz Group, Inc., of New Braunfels. Manuel Hernandez mapped the archeological trenches and features. Kevin Mandeville for Brierley Associates, Inc., coordinated and directed the borehole drilling. The Comal Cemetery manager and sexton Larry Herrmann with Maintenance Management of San Marcos provided us with cemetery maps and shared his extensive knowledge of the changes that had occurred in our project area over the past two decades.

D&M Owens, Inc., in New Braunfels provided the machines and operators for the archeological trench excavations, backfilling, and site restoration, all of which was coordinated by Jimmy Owens. Patrick Ott and Jeremy Owens did most of the trackhoe trenching.

For Prewitt and Associates, Inc., Doug Boyd and Aaron Norment were co-principal investigators. The borehole monitoring was conducted by Boyd, Norment, Ross Fields, and Karl Kibler.
