One of three stream branches crosses the north portion of the land, one tributary comes from the south and one from the north. There is also a city sewer easement that follows the stream from east to west and up from the south as well as a powerline along Lakeshore Drive at the south end of the property and along Davis Street at the north end.
The west portion of the property contains a brewery and gravel parking lot, with a hotel and parking lot under design for the area in the future. Townhomes are planned for the southeast portion. All of this makes locating the historic house a challenge since it must be placed in a spot accessible to the house-moving vehicles.
