Walnut Canyon National Monument has over 240 prehistoric Sinagua Indian sites. These include pit house villages built between 500 and 800 A.D. and several multi-room cliff dwellings and single-room field houses c. 1125 and 1250 A.D. By about 1250 A.D. the Sinagua had moved on, leaving the sites as the most obvious reminder of their habitation.

Walnut Canyon National Monument, administered by the National Park Service, is seven and a half miles east of Flagstaff, Arizona, off I-40. The Visitors Center is open 8:00am to 6:00pm in the summer, 8:00am to 5:00pm in the spring and fall, and 9:00am to 5:00pm during the winter. Please call 928-526-3367, or visit the park's website for further information.
