Along the western road of the reservation were encountered several well-defined
historic features.  These areas of historic material first came to light as mine
waste removal took place beneath this road and its shoulder.  By lining up the
background hills on historic photos with those same hills as they exist today, we
were able to determine the approximate location of the photographer and the
locations of historic structures depicted in those photos.  This analysis
indicated that the features encountered corresponded with historic structures
that made up the village of Elem at the turn of the century (1900).
