An archaeological survey of a forty acre tract of land for the Texas State Technical College Development Project in Harrison County, Texas
An archaeological survey was conducted at a 40 acre tract in the city limits of Marshall, Texas on the site of the proposed Texas State Technical College. The federal agency involved in this project is the Economic Development Administration. Fieldwork was conducted on May 11 and 12, 1992 by Brazos Valley Research Associates with William E. Moore acting as Principal Investigator. A pedestrian survey accompanied by shovel testing and probing located the disturbed remains of a historic house site (41HS528} which was apparently occupied during the latter part of the nineteenth century and the early part of the twentieth century and an operating gas well that is of recent construction. No evidence of two houses depicted on the topographic map, Marshall East, was found, and they were not assigned site numbers. Also, no evidence of prehistoric activity was observed. Historic site 41HS528, the gas well, and the other two house locations are not considered to possess significant research potential, and no additional work is recommended. It is recommended by Brazos Valley Research Associates that construction be allowed to proceed, and monitoring by an archaeologist is not considered necessary. All records of this project have been placed in permanent curation at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory in Austin, Texas.
