This historic site was first recorded in the Florida Master Site File as LA2780 in 2003 during an archaeological and historical reconnaissance survey conducted by James Dunbar and Christine Newman, both former employees of the Florida Division of Historical Resources, Bureau of Archaeological Research, CARL

Archaeological Survey (now Public Lands Archaeology program) of Seminole State Forest in Lake County, Florida. Dunbar and Newman reported their findings in "An Assessment and Documentation of Cultural Resources in Seminole State Forest, Lake County, Florida," which was completed in January of 2004.
