Tuzigoot National Monument

Tuzigoot is also located in Clarkdale and can be found on the road to old town Cottonwood. From the Sinagua culture who built this pueblo centuries ago, to the out of work miners who helped excavate in the 1930’s, to the folks who still hold the site sacred today, Tuzigoot is about people.
