In July 2014 Deep East Texas Archaeological Consultants (DETAC) conducted a cultural resource management survey of the proposed Lindale Community Park with National Recreational Trails Funds administered by Texas Parks and Wildlife. The initial phase of park development is a cement walking trail, trail side amenities, and three parking areas; however, future development will impact a majority of the park property; therefore, the entire property (9.6 hectare (23.6 acres)) was surveyed. The pedestrian survey was conducted under Texas Antiquities Permit #6931 in compliance with the Antiquities Code of Texas. The investigations included a combination of visual examination, shovel testing, and archival research. The visual examination and documentation provided by the City of Lindale at the time of the survey revealed that an early to mid-twentieth century house was on the property. The house and associated out buildings were remove as an environmental hazard when the city purchased the property. Shovel testing found modern material in the upper 30 cm (12 in) of shovel tests near the house location but no foundations or other features were found. No artifacts were curated. Archival research found that the property was in the same family since the turn of the century. DETAC is requesting concurrence with the determination of “no effect” to State Archaeological Landmarks or National Register of Historic Places eligible properties for the proposed project.
