At one time, there were between 25 to 40 longhouses in T’aanuu Llnagaay, along with 31 mortuary poles and 15 mortuary houses.

Little is left standing at T’aanuu Llnagaay, but today the spirit of the place is still strong. The house depressions and fallen moss-covered house posts give a vivid sense of the layout of the village.

Watchmen stay in a cabin near the village site and can provide information to visitors.

T’aanu Llnagaay is part of the Haida Heritage Site but not part of Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve or the National Marine Conservation Area Reserve. However, all fees, orientation requirements and restrictions apply to this village site as well as the sites within the NPR and NMCAR.
