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).
