Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 19, 1964):
This site has yielded considerable detail on cultural developments in the Flagstaff area immediately following the eruption of Sunset Crater in 1066 AD. Between 1070 and 1130 AD, a span of a little over two generations, new ideas injected into the area by immigrants from neighboring regions caused rapid change in the local culture, which gradually blended to form a new pattern of life that marked these people as distinct from others in the Southwest.

The landmark is in good condition.

Extensive loss of stands of pinyon and junipers on the site

Recommendation/Change since last report:
Removal of the dead trees is needed to ensure that the site will not be damaged by forest fire.
