The Frontier Museum
The Frontier Museum is housed in a century old barn once used as storage for the L. H. Redd Mercantile. The barn was moved from its original site and renovated to house the museum by the Monticello Foundation. The original post and beam construction is visible inside. Frontier life as it was lived on the edge of the Great Sage Plain over 100 years ago is on display. A visit to the museum is a passage through time via the day-to-day items used by our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Exhibits include vintage clothing and household items. Early telephones, relics from ancient native people, and remains from the Home of Truth are on display. Cowboys, Indians, outlaws, farmers, and shopkeepers are represented.435-587-3401
The Navajo Nation cordially welcomes you to one of our most unique landmarks
- The Four Corners. This is the only place in the United States where four
states intersect at one point: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. This
location is very remote as you will experience when visiting.
The original marker erected in 1912 was a simple cement pad, but has since been redone in granite and brass. The Visitor Center is open year round, and features a Demonstration Center with Navajo artisans. Navajo vendors sell handmade jewelry, crafts and traditional Navajo foods nearby.
Picnic tables and self-contained restrooms are available. Services and accommodations are very limited to small cafes, grocery stores and self-service gasoline stations within a 30 mile radius.
We recommend that you have plenty of water, food, snacks, hand wipes and extra toiletries when visiting. The area is very remote, no running water, no electricity, no telephones.
