Upper Mayfield Canyon Ruin Arizona Site Steward File
This contains the Arizona Site Steward file for the Upper Mayfield Canyon site, located on Tonto National Forest land. The site is comprised of masonry room blocks; compounds, including one of quartzite and limestone; a limestone pueblo; and houses. Areas between residential structures contain abundant trash deposits. Human graves and one dog burial are also located on site.
The file consists of two site steward data forms, two heritage inventory forms, an Arizona State Museum archaeological survey form, three hand drawn site maps, five maps of the site location, a site inspection/maintenance assessment form, and four pages of repeated forms. The earliest dated document is from 1954.
