An archaeological survey of a 13.8 acre tract of land: The proposed solid waste transfer station site, Lavaca County, Texas
An archaeological survey was conducted at a 13.8 acre tract just outside the city limits of Hallettsville in Lavaca County, Texas. The purpose of this project was to examine the site of the proposed solid waste transfer station for the presence of prehistoric or historic sites. Fieldwork was performed on February 12, 1993 by Brazos Valley Research Associates with William E. Moore acting as Principal Investigator and conducting the survey. The project was conducted under Texas Antiquities Permit Number 1215. The pedestrian survey accompanied by shovel testing located the western periphery of the former city dump that was in use from the late 1920s or early 1930s until the early 1990s. That portion of the dump within the project area is not considered to possess significant research potential, and a site number was not assigned. No prehistoric sites were found. It is recommended that construction be allowed to proceed as planned by the City of Hallettsville. Copies of the final report and project notes have been turned over to the Texas Antiquities Committee in Austin, Texas for distribution and permanent curation.
