The Center for Archaeological Research at The University of Texas at San Antonio conducted an archaeological survey for the Paloma Subdivision in Bexar County, Texas. The project area is located in east Bexar County and consisted of approximately 328 acres. During the survey, 85 shovel tests were excavated and sites 41BX1792, 41BX1793, 41BX1794, and 41BX1795 were identified and recorded. Two of the sites possessed prehistoric components (41BX1792 and 41BX1793). A temporal affiliation was not discernable for 41BX1793 but one diagnostic (stem of an Edwards projectile point) was recovered from 41BX1792 dating the site to the Late Prehistoric. 41BX1794 and 41BX1795 were historic farmstead sites with standing structures dating to the early-20th century to mid-20th century. None of the sites documented during the project were eligible for listing to the National Register for Historic Places (NRHP) or formal designation as State Archeological Landmarks (SAL). Further work is not recommended on any of archaeological sites recorded during the Paloma Subdivision survey. The San Antonio Historic Preservation Office (HPO) concurred with the recommendations. All materials recovered during the investigations were deeded to the Center for Archaeological Research by the land owner and are curated at the Center, along with all project related documents.
