An Archaeological Survey of Forest Service Road 556 A-2 in the Davy Crockett National Forest Houston County Texas
An archaeological survey along a 0.52-mile segment (0.83 acre) of Forest Service Road 556 A-2 in Track K-1b-III and Compartment 23 of the Davy Crocket National Forest in eastern Houston County was conducted by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) on June 17, 2008. The investigation was conducted by a 100% Pedestrian Survey of the road accompanied by shovel testing. No evidence of a prehistoric site or historic site was observed, and no artifacts were collected. The road does not cross any major creeks, and the soils in the area consist of firm clay at the surface in most places. Therefore, the length of road examined does not appear to be in a high probability area for a prehistoric site. It is recommended that the landowner not be required to retain a professional archaeologist for more work in this area. Copies of the final report are on file at the Office of the National Forests and Grasslands in Lufkin, Davy Crockett National Forest in Ratcliff Texas Historical Commission (THC), Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), and BVRA. The records are housed at the National Forests and Grasslands in Lufkin.
