On November 20, 2018, aci consulting conducted a cultural resources survey for the Buttercup Creek Natural Area Project in Williamson County, Texas. The Area of Potential Effect (APE) for this project consists of the 12-acre (4.86-hectare) Buttercup Creek Natural Area. However, due to the high amount of surface and subsurface disturbance from displaced limestone boulders and cut slabs scattered throughout the project area, the cultural resources survey was restricted to approximately 5.5 acres (2.2 hectares). The adjusted survey began at the eastern corner, traveled along the southern boundary, and terminated in the southwestern corner of the original APE (Figures 1, 2, and 3). This work was conducted in compliance with the Texas Administrative Code (13 TAC 26.20[2]) under Texas Antiquities Code permit number 8646, as well as Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. The survey did not result in the location of any new archeological sites, historic structures, or additional historic properties. Based on these results, no further archeological work is recommended. Records from this investigation will be curated at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL). Joey O’Keefe served as Principal Investigator.
