Four Corners Monument!

Four Corners Monument
What is it? Four Corners Monument is a plaza surrounded by Navajo artisans, where you can hop between the four states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah!
What makes it historical? When first picked out by government surveyors in 1912, the year Arizona and New Mexico became states and completed the four corners, this was just a basic cement pad. During restoration in 1922, that pad became a bronze disk, which became a plaza, which became a hot spot for Navajo artisans and the tourists who love a sale and a selfie! This is the only spot in the United States where the corners of four states touch at the same point!
How can I Help the Helpers? HERE’S HOW:

  • Pay the entrance fee to help maintain trails, signs, structures, and other visitor services!
  • Be a responsible visitor! Please respect the signs and pathways, and treat all structures and artifacts with respect. They’ve endured a lot to survive into the present. They’ll need our help to make it into the future!
