The University of Colorado-Colorado Springs conducted historical archaeology studies at the Bent Canyon Stage Station site 5LA3179 in 2000. The site was determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places under criteria a, b, and d at the local level. The site contained important information on stage operations and the early settlement of the Purgatoire Valley during the nineteenth century. The evaluative work at the site contributes to our understanding of the archaeology and the historic settlement and development of the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, as well as the southeastern portion of Colorado in general.
