During the mid-1990s, a cultural resources survey of Camp Bowie was conducted by the Environmental Resources Management Branch of the Adjutant General's Department of Texas (AGTX-EV) which identified a number of historical sites within the camp's boundaries. These sites included 41BR227, 41BR438, and 41BR266, all of which are sandstone walls; 41BR270 and 41BR477, both of which contain chock dams built to control erosion; 41BR290, the remains of a farmstead; and 41BR299, a bunker dating to the World War II era. In 2001 the Center for Archaeological Research at The University of Texas at San Antonio contracted with AGTX-EV to conduct additional archaeological investigations at Camp Bowie; part of that agreement called for a general investigation of the historical background of the seven sites mentioned above. This archival research was conducted under Texas Antiquities Permit no. 2591.
