The 971-acre Boyce Hill State Forest was mostly farmland and open fields. A house and barn was located at the end of Jackson Forest Road, near the present turn around. An adjacent homestead was located near a natural spring lined with stone that still exists today. According to map records and existing evidence, there were two other houses with barns located along Bryant Hill Road and Phillips Road. In addition, natural gas lines that predate state ownership cross the property.
