The ruins here were excavated by a University of Utah archeological team in 1973. The National Park Service stabilized and reconstructed
the ruins the following year. The U.S. Department of Transportation constructed the parking loop and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) constructed the
kiva's protective roof, trails and restrooms. San Juan County helped fund the interpretive display. It is administered by the BLM.
