The site contains a 9 feet (2.7 m) tall rectangular platform mound with a base measuring 130 feet (40 m) by 165 feet (50 m). Archaeologists have done core samples of the mound and determined that it was built in two stages. Combined with the core samples, ceramic analysis of artifacts found at the site have dated it to approximately 700–1200 CE. The mound has a historic period cemetery on its summit, which has prevented looting.
