There is an older frame house with 974 square feet of living area, that would make a perfect hunting cabin. In addition to the house there is a newer 800 square feet workshop, a partially enclosed and covered equipment shed. There is a water well that supplies water to the house and the surrounding area. South of the house near the entrance gate along Raymond Evans Road is a small fenced in area that has a 3 sided hay barn, water well and livestock corrals. Electricity is available at both locations.
