Pipe Spring National Monument

In 1829, Antonio Armijo found Pipe Spring and added it to the Old Spanish Trail. Used by Native Americans more than 1,000 years ago, the spring served a vital role in their survival. Missionaries from the Mormon Church settled there during the 1860s and built a fort they used as a cattle ranch. You can still see remnants of the ranch as well as Native American settlements when you visit the Pipe Spring National Monument, which became a national monument in 1923.
