The area consists of cedar forest and flowing streams that were so important to the lumber industry in the area for over 200 years, providing much need raw materials and the growing of cranberries in the village in the 1800s.

Restoration works were carried out to preserve the original historic structures of the place with the sawmill and the cranberry packing house restored in 1995 and 1996. The village contains 14 original structures from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The structures include cottages, a schoolhouse, and a general store.
