An archaeological survey of the Friedrich Park property, in north Bexar County, Texas, was conducted by the Center for Archaeological Research, University of Texas at San Antonio. These investigations were made at the request of the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of San Antonio. The field work was undertaken by the authors during the months of May and July, 1975. All field activities were carried out under the terms of State Antiquities Permit No. 83. Friedrich Park is located in northern Bexar County, approximately 10 miles north of IH 410 and west of IH 10. The specific area examined encompassed a total of approximately 200 acres. The purpose of the survey was to ascertain the existence of any historic or archaeological resources which should be preserved in the interest of the park. Once resources were found, the task of the survey team was to evaluate the nature and the significance of the sites.
