Kelly Cave (VV164), a rockshelter near the mouth of Mile Canyon, was tested in 1949 by geology student Charles E. Mear on behalf of the Texas Memorial Museum. At the time, the museum was searching for "Early Man" (Paleoindian) sites under the direction of E. H. Sellards. Near the bottom of the deposits, Mear encountered a layer containing Late Pleistocene animal bones, but found no evidence of human involvement. Photo by Steve Black.
