NOTES ON ARCHAEOLOGICAL POTENTIAL
AT 84 WATER STREET


The mission of Nombre de Dios was located in the vicinity of this
property on the Arrendondo map of 1737, an anonymous map of 1765,
and the Rocque map of 1791.

There is no evidence of a structure or structures in this area.by
the time of the Dorr map of 1860.

Chaney's analysis of the archaeological resources in the Abbott
Tract indicates 18th century activity in the area immediately to
the west of this property.

The property in question was not included in the auger surveys
conducted in this area by either Herron or Chaney.

Both the cartographic and archaeological evidence strongly
suggests that the second Mission of Nombre de Dios was located in
this area.

Recommend that any proposed footing excavation be tested at one
meter intervals utilizing a posthole digger. Should these tests
prove positive in respect to the presence of an archaeological
resource, the footing trenches should be excavated by a
professional archaeologist.

See inclosed excerpts from Chaney's "Survey and Evaluation...."
for additional information.
