Significance: Pipe Spring as a National Monument owes its existence to important historical factors in connection with the early Mormon pioneers and their struggle with the Indians of Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. Prior to being made a National Monument on May 31, 1923, the buildings at Pipe Spring were neglected and had been subjected to considerable vandalism and were in a poor state of preservation. Subsequent to that time and prior to 1925 Superintendent Pinkley, of the Southwestern National Monuments, and Leonard Heaton, custodian of the Monument, made an extensive search over the surrounding country and were fortunate in locating and redeeming most of the material taken from the buildings. These were returned to the monument and were incorporated in the restoration of the buildings in 1925 and 1929. The restoration was authentic and the buildings today are practically the same as originally constructed.
