DescriptionOff SR 389 15 miles west of Fredonia, Pipe Spring National Monument preserves a life-sustaining water source that Paiute Indians called Mu-tum-wa-va, or Dripping Rock. In the early 1870s, Mormon pioneers built a compound over the springs consisting of a sandstone fort and ranch house. Tours of the fort, named Winsor Castle, are offered. Pipe Spring has long served as a way station for weary travelers. The visitor center and cultural museum offers exhibits and a movie about Kaibab and pioneer culture and history.
