Overview

View the 1000 year-old Snake Valley archaeological site at the Baker Archaeological Viewing Site. This site, also known as Baker Village, contains the remains of a Fremont Indian village occupied from approximately 1220 to 1295 AD. This well-planned community consists of several small pit houses, granaries, and agriculture, all of which was surrounding a larger main house. After the site was excavated from 1991 to 1994, the recovered artifacts were stored at a museum in Provo, Utah. After the excavations, the site was backfilled. The walls visible today are modern walls, built in 2002. Artifacts found on the ground may be observed, but not removed, from the site.
