Oak Hill (41RK214)


Late Caddo village site located on a hill or ridge overlooking Mill Creek, a tributary of the Sabine River. This site was excavated in 1994 and 1995 as part of the investigations carried out prior to the expansion of the Oak Hill Coal Mine. This large village has approximately 42 large house features and associated middens, pits, burials, and other archaeological material. Several maize samples were dated as part of the research project and the two reported by Rogers et al. (1997) both come from postholes in Structure 2, a large circular house feature. Our map location is approximate.
