A Cultural Resources Survey for a 17.5-acre Tract within the Lake Houston Wilderness Park, Montgomery County, Texas
Texas Historical Commission
In January of 2015, Moore Archeological Consulting, Inc., conducted an intensive pedestrian cultural resource investigation of an approximately 17.5-acre tract and an associated water line within the Lake Houston Wilderness Park in southeast Montgomery County, Texas. The objectives of the investigation were to locate and identify cultural materials, sites, or historic properties within the proposed impact area, and to prepare management recommendations regarding any identified resources. The investigations were conducted for Berg-Oliver Associates under Texas Antiquities Permit Number 7156. An intensive pedestrian field survey of the current project area was conducted, and included both surface and subsurface (shovel test) examination. A total of 18 shovel tests were excavated. No cultural materials were recovered from any of the shovel tests. Consequently, no further archeological investigations are recommended. In the event that archeological deposits or features should be encountered during construction, work should cease in the immediate vicinity and the Archeology Division of the Texas Historical Commission contacted for further consultation.
