The image, from the University of Rhode Island Environmental Data Center, shows the stone walls and foundation holes of the old farmsteads beneath the tree cover. In the early 1990s the hill was briefly considered as a possible storage site for low-level radioactive waste; the hill is the western border of the Yawgoog Pond watershed. Denison Hill is mentioned in the Connecticut Countryside hike.
