Pipe Spring National Monument is a little known place in Northern Arizona. In an era before the conveniences of today's modern technology, the area was more popular as water could be found here. Pueblo and Paiute indians lived in the region and existed on hunting and gathering. But this oasis like environment drew the attention of another group. In the late 1800s, Mormon settlers homesteaded the land and built an outpost and "tithing ranch"- a place where cattle who were donated or tithed to the Mormon church were kept.
Pipe Spring Ranch was privately owned until the 1920's when it was purchased by the government and the national monument was established. In 1907, the Kaibab-Paiute Indian reservation was established on the land adjacent to the ranch.
Pipe Springs National Monument is unique in that it is a partnership between the US government and the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians who own the land adjacent to the monument. The visitor center muesum serves as a tribute to these people and provides a dozen exhibits about past and present Paiute culture.
In the 1920's the land became a National Momument. It is a small out of the way location, but worth visiting if your travels take you to this area.
