Archeological Site No. LA 54049 is a prehistoric archaeological site in Hidalgo County, New Mexico. The site was inhabited during the Animas phase (1200-1350 A.D.); it may have also had a Mimbres phase occupation in 1000-1150 A.D. The site's most distinctive feature consists of two stone lines, each roughly 30 metres (98 ft) long and separated by a 29-metre (95 ft) gap. While the purpose of the lines is uncertain, they may have demarcated a court for some sort of ball game. The site also includes a large lithic scatter and numerous ceramic fragments.

The site was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 23, 1993.
