Located in the White Mountains near Springerville, Arizona, Casa Malpais is a late Mogollon site that dates back to about 1260. It is situated on a basalt lava flow. The site features an ancient staircase, a Great Kiva, a solar calendar, and rock art. The museum features an introductory video with commentary by Zuni and Hopi elders and an interactive guide to artifacts from the site.
The site may be visited through guided tours only, and these begin at the museum. The tour is a two-hour, 3/4-mile hike on steep, rocky surfaces. Good shoes and bottled water are strongly recommended.
