The site is part of a larger forested area known locally "Slaterville 600" or the “Old 600,” which refers to the size of of a military lot of 600 acres that was given to soldiers of the Revolutionary War in lieu of payment. Two tributaries flow across the property, which have exposed shales and sandstones that are especially good examples of joint-plane fracturing.
