A Phase I Archaeological Survey of Lake Madison Park in Central Madison County, Texas
A Phase I archaeological survey of a 247 acre park in the city limits of Madisonville, Texas (Madison County) was conducted in October 1997 by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) of Bryan, Texas under Texas Antiquities permit number 1898. William E. Moore was the Principal Investigator and supervised the project. The area was investigated using the pedestrian survey method supported by shovel testing. No evidence of prehistoric or historic sites was found in the project area. A previous survey of the area prior to construction of Lake Madison by the Soil Conservation Service in 1975 observed flakes and possible burned clay in what is the current project area; however, this area was not relocated. Overall, the project area consists of shallow soils and is very disturbed through construction of park improvements. Should a site be present within the boundaries of the park its integrity is most likely to be affected by one of the various forms of disturbance present in this area. The final report is on file at the Division of Antiquities Protection, Texas Historical Commission (THC), the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), and BVRA.
