Wupatki National Monument, established in 1924, preserves several prehistoric pueblos with standing architecture, including Wupatki, Wukoki, and Crack-in-Rock. Located in north-central Arizona, the Monument is the only known area in the Southwest where physical evidence from at least three archeologically separate Ancestral Puebloan cultures (Cohonina, Sinagua, and Kayenta) is found together in a number of sites. Historic Navajo and Anglo ranch sites are also present in Wupatki, although grazing is no longer allowed on the native grasslands protected by the Monument.

Additional information can be found at the official National Park Service website for Wupatki and at the Learning Center of the American Southwest Wupatki National Monument page.
