Texas Historical Commission


An archaeological survey totaling 21.9 acres in a parcel tract and 5,929 feet of proposed water and wastewater pipelines with a 50 foot right-of-way was completed for the proposed 2017 Texas Capital Fund Project for the City of Grapeland in Houston County, Texas (totaling 28.71 acres surveyed). American Archaeology Group LLC conducted the work under the auspices of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and Antiquities Permit Number 8154. This survey was conducted in September 2017. The project area is located in northern Houston County, Texas. The field investigation was performed using the pedestrian survey method supported by backhoe trenching to test for potential subsurface cultural deposits. No cultural resources were identified during the course of this survey, therefore, it is recommended that the proposed project be allowed to proceed as planned. Monitoring by an archaeologist is not considered necessary. No artifacts were recovered, and project survey records are houses at AAG.
