The Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of the University of Texas at San Antonio conducted National Register of Historic Places eligibility testing at archeological site 41BX1749 located in southwest Bexar County, Texas. The work was completed under a contract with the HNTB Corporation (contracted by TxDOT) as part of the proposed Loop 410 Southwest Improvement Project, San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. Testing of the site included mechanical auger boring, backhoe trenching and three 1-x-1 meter test units. The archeological work was conducted under Texas Antiquities Committee permit #4679 with Jennifer L. Thompson serving as Principal Investigator. Testing concluded that 41BX1749 is a multi-component site that includes a historic and prehistoric component. The historic component dates to the late 19th or early 20th century. The prehistoric component could not be dated. However, the component was found to be intact in one of the three test units and CAR recommends that the deposits are eligible for listing on the NRHP based on National Register evaluation criterion D. All artifacts collected and records generated during this project are curated at the Center for Archaeological Research according to Texas Historical Commission guidelines.
