Looking south into the Sharp Creek valley at the Kroeker house -- behind it is the Roy Smith site    

The Roy Smith site is about twenty miles northwest of Odessa Yates on a spring-fed creek.  It has the stone slab architecture characteristic of Antelope Creek sites and lacking at Odessa Yates and similar sites.  The house has one long wall with several rooms divided off the wall.  It was excavated in the mid-1960's.
