This historical archaeology site is significant for the period of 1834 to 1865 in conjunction with travelers, traders and settlers along the Santa Fe Trail. Among the physical features of the site are two contributing resources: the foundations of a large grist mill and the remnants of a once active stream channel used to power the mill.
