Hohokam Pima National Monument

Hohokam Pima National Monument is located in the Sonoron Desert of sourthern Arizona. It is one of the more unusual parks in the National Park System, as is it the only park not open to the public. The monument is located on the Gila River Indian Reservation. The community has determined that this area is too sensitive to support visitors and have closed it to the public.

The park was desiginated a National Monument in 1972 by Congress to protect an ancient Hohokam village. The village site has been studied many times by archeologists over the years, who learned that the site was occupied by the Hohokam as far back as 300 B.C. Today the site has been completely covered over by earth to preserve it for future generations.

While the monument is closed to visitors, you can learn more about Hokokam cultural history by visiting the nearby Casa Grande Ruins National Monument.
