An Archaeological Survey for the Chatfield Water Supply Corporation Water System Improvements Project in Navarro County Texas
An archaeological survey for the proposed improvements to the Chatfield Water Supply Corporation (WSC) water system was conducted on February 22, 2006 by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) in east-central Navarro County, Texas. Five high probability areas pre-selected by the Texas Historical Commission were examined for the presence of significant prehistoric and/or historic sites within the Area of Potential Effect (APE). Two cemeteries are near the proposed route of the water line. These are the Petty’s Chapel Cemetery and the Navarro County Cemetery. The Petty’s Chapel Cemetery was established in the late 1800s, is fenced, and contains graves dating to the 19th and 20th centuries. The Navarro County Cemetery was established in the 1880s and is the final resting place for indigent persons, mentally ill patients, and prisoners buried by the county. These sites will be avoided by the planned construction. No previously unrecorded sites (prehistoric or historic) were found. This investigation was performed under Antiquities Permit 4041. In all, six acres were examined, and no artifacts were collected. Copies of the report are on file at the Texas Historical Commission, Archeology Division and the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory in Austin, Texas.
