The Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of The University of Texas at San Antonio conducted National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) eligibility testing at site 41BX1764. The archaeological testing associated with the Salado Creek Greenway project located in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas was completed to fulfill contract requirements with Adams Environmental, Inc. of San Antonio. The survey was conducted under the requirements of the City of San Antonio Unified Development Code Chapter 35, Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, and the Texas Antiquities Code. The archaeological testing was performed under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 4989, with Cynthia M. Munoz, serving as Principal Investigator and Antonia L. Figueroa serving as Project Archaeologist. The work was conducted in advance of construction of a multi-use greenway trail proposed by the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of San Antonio. Results from testing revealed a multi-component site with a Late Prehistoric Toyah component. A deeper second component, of unknown date, was also identified. The Late Prehistoric component has been impacted by erosion and the existing trail, while the lower component appears to be in a secondary depositional context. No features were revealed during testing and the CAR does not recommend the site as eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) or for formal designation as a State Archeological Landmark. All materials recovered during the investigation and all project related documents are curated at the Center for Archaeological Research.
