Four Corners Monument, Utah, History, Culture

Four Corners Monument

The only spot where you can be in four states at once, the Four Corners Area was once a vast complex of ancient villages, rich in Ancestral Puebloan culture.see more »

Four Corners Area

The Four Corners Monument is the only place in the US where four states meet at one point. Following government surveys that revealed a terminus of the four states' boundaries joining in one place, the original Four Corners Monument was erected in 1912 as a simple cement pad. In 1992, the monument was reconstructed with a copper disc within a granite surface. Each state's boundary radiates from the center of this disc with the state's seal emblazoned within its respective area.

Located within a larger region called the Colorado Plateau, the Four Corners Monument is administered by the Navajo Nation Department of Parks. In addition to the four states, two additional governments have jurisdictional boundaries that meet here: the Navajo Nation and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribal boundaries also meet here. The Four Corners Region is part of semi-autonomous American Indian nations, which include the Navajo, the Ute, the Hopi, and the Zuni. The largest of them are the Navajo (or Diné) people. Visit the Four Corners Region Geotourism MapGuide for some excellent local information in the area.

The monuments Visitor Center features information about the native cultures of the region. Evidence of ancestral Puebloan cultures in this area have been dated to earlier than 1300 A.D. Around the monument, Native American artisans and craftsman sell their handmade jewelry, crafts, and traditional foods from numerous booths and shops.

The Four Corners Monument works well as part of an itinerary of the area that should also include:

Arches National Park
Canyonlands National Park
Dead Horse Point State Park
