A survey of archaeological, architectural and historical sites on the San Antonio River from Olmos Dam to South Alamo Street and on San Pedro Creek from San Pedro to Guadalupe Street
In January 1979, the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, was requested by the Fort Worth District United States Army Corps of Engineers to prepare a historical, architectural and archaeological survey of the lands for 1/4-mile on either side of the San Antonio River from the Olmos Dam to South Alamo Street, and the San Pedro Creek from San Pedro Park to Guadalupe Street. The purpose of the project is to compile as much information as is now available on the prehistoric and historic sites located within the survey area for use in planning future flood control projects. The survey was carried out under the direction of Dr. Thomas R. Hester, Director of the Center. A team of three Center archaeologists worked together on this project: Cristi Assad and James Ivey carried out a field survey of areas which had not been covered by previous archaeological or historical surveys. Ivey also helped prepare the project map and assisted with numerous other details. Anne Fox compiled information from archeological survey reports, the Historic American Building Survey, the San Antonio Historic Survey (City Planning Department 1972) and various publications on San Antonio history. This was combined with the results of the field survey to produce the final analysis of the project area.
