Evidence of extensive oyster shell was observed along the south bank cliff. Prehistoric materials included three firecracked rocks and four quartz flakes. Historic artifacts included one tin-glazed earthenware fragment, one rosehead wrought nail, and one 12-gauge shotgun shell base.

Testing of the northeast boundary was limited by disturbance caused by earthmoving activities. The site is separated from 18CH480 by an area of disturbance (a borrow pit) to the southwest of the site.
