Homolovi State Park, established in 1986 protects, preserves, and interprets over 400 archaeological sites including four very late 14th century pueblos formerly occupied by the ancestors of the Hopi People of today (the Hisat’sinom, also referred to as the Anasazi). Homolovi serves as a center of research for the late migration period of the Hopi from the 1200′s to the late 1300′s. Homolovi is a gateway to this ancient culture and self guided tours of the Homolovi Pueblos allow visitors an opportunity of exploration and discovery. Additional information is available at www.azstateparks.com. The Winslow Homolovi Observatory is open with star parties on the fourth Saturday of each month except December for 2019. The current calendar of events for the Winslow Homolovi Observatory is available on our website
