Finding arrowheads across Texas is a hobby for those who enjoy a treasure hunt, have a keen eye and a great deal of patience. Texas has several bountiful areas to locate arrowheads and other Native American Indian artifacts. The best time to hunt for arrowheads and other artificats is after a rainfall.
Old Tribal Land
Southern Texas had many Native American tribes that lived in the area prior to the European settlers who moved to the state. The largest tribe who lived on the lands in the area of Woodville were the Alabama-Coushatta. They roamed the southern portion of Texas and left behind very interesting items. Many of the local beaches, streams and rivers will produce quality Indian artifacts.
Beaches, Streams and Rivers
A good rainstorm washes the dirt off the upper soil surface. Sea-Rim State Park and several local streams in the area of Woodville turn up arrowheads. The rocks and gravel along the edges of the streams and rivers in Southern Texas have quality arrowheads that are more visible after a strong rain. Two good creeks for finding arrowheads, Beech Creek and Village Creek, are located near Silsbee.
Several Indian mounds are scattered throughout Texas. One area is the Big Thicket of Southeast Texas. Plan a good day of hiking and look for the Indian Mounds. Arrowheads and other Indian artifacts are found in these areas.References
