'Shrieking Woman's Grove'.
Name may indicate an iron working site.
E. Rose (NAU)
It should be noted that (S1) suggests this name most was more likely to point to "… some fearful crime committed on the spot than to refer to the origin of these pits." The name relates to the cries of a ghostly woman who had apparently been sighted on a number of occasions.
