This Spanish-American homestead was patented in 1913 and today consists of the remnants of two sandstone structures (one still standing, the other completely collapsed), a corral (remnants only), and small stock pen (intact). Nearby is Gonzales Springs which would have provided ample water source for livestock (HABS 1933).
