An Archaeological Survey for the Proposed Clyde City Park Callahan County Texas
An archaeological survey of a proposed city park in north-central Callahan County, Texas was performed on January 28, 2008 by Brazos Valley Research Associates for the City of Clyde under Antiquities Permit 4783. The project area was investigated by shovel testing and backhoe trenching. The footprint for the park is 6.2 acres. Four shovel tests and nine backhoe trenches dug through clay loam and caliche to depths of 100 cm to 180 cm were generally negative in terms of producing cultural materials, and no artifacts were collected. One backhoe trench yielded two modern brick fragments and one white ware ceramic sherd. These items may be associated with the remains of a former filling station that once was present in the northern end of the project area. It was destroyed prior to the acquisition of the park by the City of Clyde. The entire 6.2-acre tract has been greatly disturbed during the demolishing of the filling station and tree removal. It is very unlikely that intact cultural materials are present anywhere in the project area. It is recommended that construction of the park be allowed to proceed as planned by the City of Clyde. Copies of the report are on file at the Texas Historical Commission, Texas Archeological Research Laboratory, Brazos Valley Research Associates, and the City of Clyde.
