A Phase I Cultural Resources Survey of the Proposed City of Kirbyville 2001 TCDP Water Project, Jasper County, Texas
A Phase I cultural resources investigation of a 9.8 acre tract in central Jasper County, Texas was performed by Brazos Valley Research Associates of Bryan, Texas in June 2002. No prehistoric archaeological sites were found to exist within the project area. The soil consisted of a shallow fine sandy loam over yellow clay containing iron nodules and pebbles. Overall, the 9.8 acre tract was determined to be a very low probability area for the occurrence of prehistoric sites. According to the landowner, several 19th century houses were once located to the north of the project area; however permission to examine this area was not granted. The only evidence of historic utilization observed in the project area was the remains of a fuel oil tank and a cooling tank. Archival research revealed the tanks were originally owned by the Magnolia Pipeline Company and were constructed in the late 1930s. Since no significant archaeological sites were found, it is recommended that construction be allowed to proceed as planned.
