Notes
Survey number HAER WY-51-S
Significance: Structure S is a collapsed wooden shed associated with Structure P. The shed is located 21 feet 4 inches southwest of the southwest corner of the structure. The building is located at the upper end of a small southwest to northeast trending valley leading to Horse Thief Draw. The shed is located approximately 1/2 mile northwest of Superior. The shed is a rectangular structure oriented from west to east. The overall dimensions are 19 feet 1 inch east to west by 12 feet 10 inches north to south. The structure contains two openings, a doorway 8 feet 10 inches wide in the east elevation, and a smaller doorway in the north elevation 2 feet 8 inches west of the northeast corner. The doorway is 2 feet 3 inches wide and 6 feet 6 inches tall. No door remains. The walls of the structure consist of vertically placed milled lumber planks over a frame of horizontal milled lumber planks. The exterior is covered with tar paper. The roof is gabled consisting of milled lumber planks over a frame of additional planks. Green tar paper covers the roof which has collapsed. The collapsed roof and weakened walls have resulted in the structure being in poor condition.
