Without seeing the original application to the National Park Service for the inclusion of this site on the NRHP, you almost need to go there and see. I did go to look for the application but as of this writing, the NPS has not digitized it. That said, some applications do not spell out the non-contributing structures in a district, although many do.

Hi, it mentions one contributing object but doesnít specify what the object is and any history associated with it. I guess Iím curious as to what that might be. Thanks, Heath.
