Native Americans used this area for at least a thousand years before the Mormons arrived in the 1860s to begin cattle ranching. Made a national monument in 1923, it offers excellent living history demonstrations, an old fort and interpretive trails that offer a glimpse of American Indian and pioneer life in the Old West.
