Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 29, 1987):
Consists of the first buildings constructed by the National Park Service (1921) based on cultural traditions represented in the Park area. The principal designer believed that structures could be used for interpretive purposes to explain the construction of prehistoric dwellings in the Park, and be compatible with their natural and cultural setting.

The district is in good condition, though wildfire remains a threat.
