This ancient native American ruin was reconstructed during the works projects administration in the 1930's. The site sits on top of a small hill in the middle of a beautiful valley. It is thought to be the ruins of a village of the Sinagua tribe between AD 1125 and 1400.

The monument is quite hot in the summer time, so hats and water is recommended when walking around the ruins. There is a small but interesting air-conditioned museum featuring pottery, tools, and other artifacts from the site. There are also books and souvenirs available for purchase.

There is a $5 per person fee for adults, but children are free.

This site can be toured in less than an hour and is a nice attraction to visit on the way from Prescott to Sedona, Arizona.

Directions: Near Clarkdale, Arizona off of the ALT 89 highway.
