The Settlement of the Neolith Period was left by the tribes of the Bugo-Dnistrovs'ka Culture, it is the V-V millenniums B.C. The Settlement was found while mining the quarry in 1926. During works it was found out, that the inspected plot was only the part of the settlement, which was located on the slope of the Muksha River. The works in the Settlement had prospecting and saving character. The location of the materials of the works of V.O.Gerynovych is unknown.

The Settlement occupies an area of 2.5 hectares. It is located on the slope of the Muksha River. In the wall of the quarry the remnants of the area with the furnace and unique burial place in the stone box were found. Remnants of two skeletons (sex and age are not determined), three vessels, and three polished axes were found in the box. The box consists of massive plates. It is 1.6 m long, 0.73 m wide, and 0.78 m high. There is one more area with a furnace and prints of pegs, which is located 400 m to the north west from the burial place. All these materials are similar in their types and close by the conditions of laying. Probably, it's the remnants of one of one settlement. According to the ceramics found and polished axes, the Settlement and the burial place are dated from the V-V millenniums B.C.

According to the Order of the Executive Committee of Khmel'nyts'ka Oblast' Council from 5.05.1974, No.143, a border of the reserved area was established in radius of 50 m there. The Settlement is protected by the slope in the North, the edge of the quarry in the West and East, and by the field in the South.
