On behalf of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), AmaTerra Environmental, Inc. conducted an intensive archeological survey of six parcels (Parcels 1-6), measuring approximately 32 acres along US 287, in Memphis, Hall County, Texas. Work consisted of visual inspection of the entire project area and the excavation of 71 shovel tests. Fieldwork was conducted from March 2–4, 2020. Jennifer Anderson of TxDOT served as Principal Investigator, under Texas Antiquities Code Permit No. 9246.

No cultural material was encountered on the surface or in any of the subsurface tests; no new archeological sites were recorded. No further archeological work is recommended at any location within the six surveyed parcels. No artifacts were collected as part of this project. All notes and field records will be housed at AmaTerra Environmental, Inc.
