Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 28, 1987):
Constructed between 1937 and 1940 in the Spanish-Pueblo Revival style, the interior spaces have unusually high quality of design. Particularly notable is the former Trading Post Room, illuminated by a translucent skylight with multiple panes of glass painted in designs of prehistoric Pueblo pottery. The murals are by the late Hopi artist, Fred Kabotie.

The landmark is in good condition.

The whole building and exterior have been rehabilitated.
