Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 19, 1964):
This large area, comprising some 70 square miles, contains vestiges of the earliest traditionally recognized Puebloan architecture - above-ground dwellings built around a central courtyard with associated underground kiva. The ridge is considered the type location of the Pueblo II period (A.D. 900-1100), a transitional time between life focused within scattered pit dwellings and a true sedentary life-style with multistory structures, irrigation agriculture, and high-quality ceramics.

Currently there are no threats to the landmark.

Regular patrols along main roads, and intermittent patrols elsewhere in the NHL.
