  • “You see the copper mine of the area everywhere. Learn the history!” Pretty cool to think this area was mined for copper thousands of years ago by Native Americans and now it is mined by modern Americans. Its a small site but packed with information and ruins to study. I take my whitewater river guides from the nearby Upper Salt River Canyon each year to reacquaint themselves with some of the local history to share on the raft trips. Enjoy!
  • This site of the well-preserved remains of a pueblo of the Salado people rivals just about any other archaeological ruins I've visited in the American Southwest. A must-see event hosted here annually is the Festival of Lights in which hundreds of luminaria (paper bags emanating with light) are arranged around the property. It's a one-night-only festival generally occurring the weekend before Christmas. It's an enchanting experience for the whole family!
  • Easy self guided tour of partially recreated indian ruins. Site has a great gift shop and museum with a short video.
  • We have take our family ,friends and girl scout troop many times.we are happy it is still here to enjoy.
  • Self guided through the pueblo. Informational signs are thorough. Museum has a short movie worth watching first.
