The archaeological site at SunWatch was first discovered by amateur archaeologists John Allman and Charles Smith in the early 1960s. At the time, the City of Dayton was planning to use the land to expand a nearby sewage treatment plant. Allman and Smith contacted the curator at the Dayton Museum of Natural History to ensure the historical artifacts could be recovered before the site was impacted. In 1971, the museum began excavating the site and discovered remnants of a three-acre Native American village. Instead of expanding the sewage plant, The City of Dayton added SunWatch to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. By 1988, SunWatch opened to the public and became a National Historic Landmark in 1990.
