An archaeological survey of the site identified the architectural remains of 10 houses. House foundations revealed that the buildings had two or four rooms and an associated cellar. The presence of both late machine-cut and wire nails suggested that some structures were built shortly after the Civil War, when both types of nails were in use. The association of only wire nails with most houses, however, suggested that the bulk of the structures in the community were built after the 1890s.
The spatial distribution of building remains indicated that the community was organized into small family farmsteads. Each consisted of one to two houses and outbuildings that included sheds, kitchens, barns, and root cellars. Residents appeared to have shared a cistern and well.
Grave markers found in several locations suggested that some families buried their dead near their home, while others used the community cemetery. Few fences separated properties, and according to oral traditions, families shared many resources.
