Flagstaff in Coconino County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Three rooms are obvious today. Others were probably present during the period of occupation. A plaza area on the Southern side of the flat sandstone surface was likely used for daily activities such as food preparation, pottery-making, and may also have been an area for children to play. During mild weather it must have been a much more inviting place than the dark rooms of the pueblo.
The whole picture of this prehistoric community can only be completed with your assistance. Please leave the pottery sherds and other artifact where they are found. Do not deface the sandstone boulders and walls in any way. These are invaluable
