The Elden Pueblo complex inside the city of Flagstaff was occupied from 1070 - 1275 AD by the Sinagua people. The complex was abandoned due to a nearby volcanic eruption and a 20 year drought.

The Elden Pueblo became an important trade center where ideas and goods such as plainware pottery, obsidian projectile points, and finely woven textiles.

The Smithsonian Museum excavated the ruins in 1926 and was initially considered for National Monument status but was never finalized and today the site is administered by the National Forest Service.

Since 1980 the pueblo has been used as a schoolhouse where the public, particularly elementary schoolchildren, can gain an understanding of archaeology. There was a class going on during photography (students can be seen near the canopy).
