At the time of the 1949 excavations of the site, remains found here, dating to 8,000 BC, were among the earliest known for the Archaic Period. The remains from Early and Middle Archaic times give the site its importance and illustrate a merging of Eastern and Plains influence in Missouri. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, January 20, 1961
