with their frontal poles.

View from the north end of the village, looking south. Drawing of Mountain House, located at the northern end of the main house row (A), showing its frontal pole and mortuary pole.
The drawing shows mortuary poles associated with two houses at the northern end of the village (B) as it might have been in the late nineteenth century before abandonment.
