Near Sylvester in Fisher County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Adair - Steadman Site
Prehistoric peoples chose to live here because of the availability of water at the time of occupation and the presence of a large stone resource area nearby. Stone tools and other material recovered include fluted point fragments, point preforms, channel flakes, scrapers, gravers, and large bifaces. Future archeological, geological, and paleontological studies of the site may yield sufficient data to reconstruct the physical appearance of the site during its period of occupation.
One of the most significant locations of Folsom artifacts in North America, the Adair-Steadman site is important as a valuable source of information on the prehistory of the state, the nation, and the entire continent. It is protected from disturbance by Federal and State antiquities laws.
Erected 1984 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 82.)
