The Murray Springs Clovis Site in Cochise County has been designated as a National Historic Landmark.

The site was nominated by an archaeologist from the Bureau of Land Management last year and was officially designated in October after a recommendation from the National Park Service and National Park System Advisory Board.

The site is in the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area and is said to be one of the best-dated Paleoindian sites in North America. The Paeoindian period dates back 17,000 years.

The historic landmark is open to the public during regular visiting hours and is just a few miles east of Sierra Vista. Take Moson Road and follow the signs to Murray Springs.
