Preserved at the Hohokam Pima National Monument, also known as Snaketown, is the Snaketown-Settlement, archaeological remains of the Hohokam culture.

Snaketown was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964.

The monument, which was established in 1972, encompasses several square miles of nonfederal land near Sacaton, Arizona. The National Monument was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on July 19, 1974.

This area is part of the Gila River Indian Community and not accessible to the public, though the nearby Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, in Coolidge, Arizona, is, and its visitor center museum contains artifacts from the Hohokam Pima National Monument.
