A Reconnaissance Survey of a 20 Acre Tract in South Central Hidalgo County, Texas
A reconnaissance survey of a twenty acre site on private land was conducted by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) on June 29, 1995 at the request of the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma who wish to operate a gaming facility at this location. Although the entire tract was evaluated, only ten acres will be involved in the permit application. No previously recorded archaeological sites were found to be present within the project area and the field reconnaissance did not locate evidence of a prehistoric or historic site. The entire tract has been disturbed and is approximately five miles from the nearest water source, the Rio Grande River. Therefore, the project area is considered unlikely to contain significant, intact cultural resources. It is recommended that construction be allowed to proceed as planned with no additional archaeological investigation.
