An archaeological survey for the Bruceville-Eddy water system project in McLennan and Falls Counties, Texas
MetadataShow full item record
An archaeological survey at the site of a proposed water treatment plant was performed by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) on January 13, 2016 for the city of Bruceville-Eddy in McLennan and Falls counties, Texas. The project area consisted of two miles of highway right-of-way and a tract of land 103 acres in size. The soil throughout the 103 acre tract consists of firm black and brown clay at or near the surface (see Environmental Setting for description of soil). In some areas, marl was present at depths of 30 cm or less. No evidence of a prehistoric site was found. Two historic sites were recorded. These include a farmstead (41ML309) that consists of a collapsed house, a pole barn, brick lined well, and storm cellar. Other minor outbuildings were observed in other areas at least 40 m distant. The second historic site (41ML310) is a wooden house that had been added onto at one time. It is not known if it is associated with the farmstead to the north. This project was performed under Antiquities Permit 7510 issued by the Texas Historical Commission (THC), Archeology Division. No artifacts were collected. Copies of the report are on file at the THC, Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), BVRA, Texas State Library, various repositories and agencies, and the City of Bruceville-Eddy.
