The brick house in the rear was owned by Wm. Bent, fur trader. On Sun., Oct. 23, 1864 heavy fighting occurred here. After Union Gen. Curtis flanked the Confederate line by coming up a ravine (Rockwell Lane) his troops were a few rods north of the house. The Confederate line was defended by portions of Jackman's and Thompson's Brigades of Shelby's Div. At about noon the Confederates were pushed back to 55th Street. They withdrew south at 1:00 p.m.

Go east on 55th; left on Summit; right on 51st to the Sunset Hill School.
