A total of 47 artifacts was recovered from 60 shovel tests and 19 metal detector hits excavated across the site of which 22 (47 percent) were prehistoric and 25 artifacts (53 percent) were historic. The prehistoric assemblage includes two biface fragments, 12 secondary flakes, 2 tertiary flake, and 6 angular debris fragments. Lithics are generally made from locally obtainable quartz and quartzite although one chert flake was also identified. The historic assemblage contains a total of 4 3-ring Minnie balls, one of which had a Swage machine mark at the base. A Swage mark is made by a specific machine type that leaves a star like impression in the base of the bullet. All Minnie balls showed evidence of being fired but only one had clearly impacted an object. In addition, a corroded flat circular metal item, 3 aqua glass bottle fragments, 6 machine cut nails (1840–1890), 1 wire nail, 1 unidentified nail fragment, scissors, a horse shoe, an iron spike,2 burned animal bone fragments, and 1 possible piece of horse tack were recovered from the site (Photo 9, p. 42). However, no definable artifact concentrations were noted within the site.
