Pipestone National Monument [MN]

The Pipestone National Monument was established by Congress in 1937 in order to protect historic pipestone quarries, considered sacred by many American Indians. Today, visitors can tour the quarries, where American Indians continue to quarry stone for sacred pipes today.

The park offers tours and interpretive events during the spring, summer, and fall months. The website offers a history of the site as well as visitor information.
