Archaeological Survey of the Proposed EMLI at Pecan Creek Housing Development Denton County, Tx
Texas Historical Commission
Liberty Multifamily, LLC is proposing to develop approximately 12 acres of a 22-acre tract east of FM2931, approximately 0.4 miles north of its intersection with Ike Byrom Road in Denton County, Texas. Liberty Multifamily, LLC contracted with AR Consultants, Inc. to conduct an intensive cultural resources survey of the 12 acres slated for development. Archaeological survey of the tract was conducted on July 17-18, 2019. Based on the research conducted prior to the survey, two hypotheses were developed. AR Consultants, Inc. hypothesized that there is moderate potential for encountering prehistoric and low potential for encountering historic archaeological sites within the survey area. As expected, a single prehistoric site (41DN619) was encountered during survey. Site 41DN619 is an approximately 0.4-acre lithic scatter, similar to nearby sites along Pecan Creek and its tributaries. Based on the results of this survey, AR Consultants, Inc. is unable to make a recommendation for the site regarding its significance and eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places. AR Consultants, Inc. requests guidance from the Texas Historical Commission on this matter.
