The Kayenta Anasazi Indians began to build this pueblo around 1060 A.D.  They abandoned it sometime around 1275 A.D.  As with other Anasazi structures, no one really knows why they left their homes, although prolonged drought and civil strife are among the most popular theories.  Photo taken in 1991 by Howard J. Partridge.
