The landmark is situated on terraces of a fallen basalt cliff
along the upper Little Colorado River, the site dates from late
Pueblo III to early Pueblo IV (1250-1325 AD) times. Casa Malpais
appears to incorporate features of both early and late Mogollon
Culture settlement patterns.
There are no threats to the landmark.
The park service works with the Center for
Desert Archaeology, based out of Tucson, AZ.. In the past few
years the site has been backfilled and stabilized. It is
monitored on a daily basis by tour guides through out the year.
