Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 27, 1992):
These are the extraordinarily well-preserved remains of an Indian town dating to about 400 years ago. The site pertains to the Fort Ancient culture, who were the descendants of the cosmopolitan Hopewell trading societies and related to the other great urbanizing mound-buildiers of the Mississippian period.

Unauthorized plowing occurs at times. Site is surface collected and materials removed..

Recommendation/Change since last report:
Ensure that site is not plowed and remains planted with appropriate materials to maintain ground cover to prevent further surface collecting. More frequent monitoring of the site to assess and prevent further damage and to discourage and/or control unauthorized surface collecting.
