Our Story

The Nations of the Four Corners was founded by a Blanding local, Cleal Bradford. He wanted to provide people with a place that explains and preserves the diverse heritage and history of the region. 

His vision was brought to life in 1989. There are over 60 acres to explore and learn about the many people who lived in this area. 

Today, Nations is lead by Cleal Bradford’s daughter, Lisa Carr. She puts her heart and soul into preserving and maintaining the trails and home sites.

What We Do


We work hard to preserve the unique heritage of the Four Corners region. There are six home sites on our trails which give visitors the opportunity to see how and where these people lived. 


There are so many different features to explore in the over five miles of well-maintained trails. Climb the observation tower or pack a picnic lunch to enjoy this location. Come visit during the spring to see the many colorful flowers that bloom and the animals that call this area home. 


Come join us for one of our events we have throughout the year. From scholarly discussions to family friendly events, we truly have something for everyone.
