Donations are greatly appreciated. The development of the site and its ongoing operation are made possible by your donations.
Visitors' Center, and historic structures: Open Monday thru Saturday from 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.; Sunday 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. No retail sales of merchandise on Sunday. Within the Visitor's Center are audio-visual displays, a fully loaded covered wagon, photos of early residents, and a gift shop. Upstairs you will find quilts, works by local artists, and a dance floor. Bluff Fort is comprised of family-sponsored cabins representative of those built before 1895. The oldest anglo-built structure in San Juan County still stands within Bluff Fort! Step inside a genuine Navajo hogan and discover that lifestyle. Dress in our pioneer attire, and climb aboard a covered wagon, or pull an authentic pioneer handcart. Take a picture. Have a picnic. Modern Restrooms.
During off hours, buildings are closed, but visitors are welcome to stroll through the site, take a photo with a covered wagon or peek through the windows of the pioneer cabins. A memorial wall honors those who made the 1879-80 journey.
