Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 19, 1964):
Occupied from about 1775 to 1825, this was the last dwelling place of the Big Osage Indians in southwest Missouri, prior to their removal to a reservation in Kansas. The site was visited in 1806 by Zebulon Pike. Because of the large number of trade goods found here, the site illustrates the rapid acculturation of the Big Osage.

Condition:
Minor erosion threat from agricultural practices.

There has been no change since the last reporting period.
