The Graham-Applegate webpage was written by Chuck Hixson and developed by the TBH webteam. Original art was created by TBH artist Charles Shaw; other drawings were done by Peggy Maceo and were provided by the Lower Colorado River Authority.

I am very much indebted to the late Dot Applegate and her family for allowing the excavations to take place on their land. Without their cooperation, the project would have been so severely limited that the true importance of the site would never have been realized. The Graham-Applegate investigations have been supported throughout by numerous volunteers who have contributed their time, energy and resources (see Behind the Scenes). In addition, the following people and organizations have provided financial backing or goods/services:

Teacher's Pages

The River People is a set of teaching curricula tied to the prehistory of Texas and incorporating materials and learning tools from the LCRA Nightengale Archaeological Center in Kingsland, near the Graham-Applegate site. Written by Dr. Mary Black and her students at the University of Texas at Austin, the lesson plans include learning opportunities in language arts, science, geography, and archeology.
