In late 1985, an area of archaeological sites near Hovey Lake was designated a historic district and listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its archaeological importance. It is one of many substantial archaeological locations in Point Township: a very cursory survey of the county in the 1940s found fifteen different villages in the township, most of them within 2 miles (3.2 km) of one or both rivers. Today, it is one of three National Register-listed archaeological locations in Point Township, along with the Ashworth Archaeological Site and the Murphy Site; as well, the township includes the Hovey Lake-Klein and Welborn Village sites, which were deemed eligible for the National Register but were not added purely because of objections by property owners.
