|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!
