Abstract : In 1993, Geo-Marine, Inc., was contracted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, to conduct cultural resources investigations on approximately 1,342 hectares (3,317 acres) within the Red River Army Depot (RRAD) and Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant (LSAAP) in Bowie County, Texas, as part of an ongoing program to identify and evaluate all of the cultural resource properties within the two facilities. The intensive archeological survey involved a systematic on-the-ground pedestrian survey and selective shovel testing of high probability site areas and areas with dense ground cover. As a result of this survey, 44 archeological sites and 50 nonsite localities were identified. Thirty-one of the sites are prehistoric and 13 are historical. The prehistoric sites range in age from the Late Archaic to the Caddoan periotls, although the majority cannot be accurately dated. The historical sites range from as early as 1885 up until 1941. Most, however, postdate 1900. Eighteen sites are recommended to be ineligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The other 26 sites are considered to be of unknown status in regard to their NRHP eligibility. Two sites on the RRAD (4lBW559 and 560) are cemeteries requiring archival research. The remaining 24 sites, including six on the RRAD (41BW529, 533, 536, 538, 547, and 562 ) and 18 on the LSAAP (41BW417, 418, 419, 420481, 483, 484, 492, 495, 496, 497, 498, 499, 500, 530, 531, 532, and 546) require additional archeological investigation in order to determine their NRHP status. The nonsite localities are believed to have no research potential and are recommended to he ineligible for inclusion in the NRHP.
