The archaeological remains investigated at the Enos Hardin farmstead consisted of stone chimney foundations, postholes, a pit cellar, and trash pits associated with the main house. Concentrations of architecture-related artifacts, such as window glass and nails, indicated that outbuildings were located behind the main house. Recovery of ceramic dish fragments, bottle glass, and animal bone indicated that Hardin likely used some of these outbuildings to house the people he enslaved.
Other artifacts came from trash disposal areas linked to the main house where the Hardin family lived. These objects consisted of kitchen-related and personal artifacts, such as ceramics, glass containers, table glass, animal bone, buttons, marbles, smoking pipes, pencils, and writing board fragments. Most represent the types of artifacts archaeologists usually recover from rural farmsteads. On the other hand, the fine tablewares suggested that the Hardin family lived well for middle-class farmers, and that they had attained a great deal of social and economic status through their participation in the institution of slavery.
