Excavations here in 1968 discovered that four of the Stockade walls ran through this part of the site, including one wall with a round bastion and two with rectangular bastions. The partial reconstruction seen here represents one of the open-backed bastions associated with the third or fourth constructions of the wall.

Excavations in 1988 found more sections of the Stockade wall and portions of a round and rectangular bastion farther to the west. They also showed where the Mississippians had filled in part of this area before building the walls.
