South Half of Agate House Ruin
Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona

The Anasazi Indians built and occupied this eight room pueblo between 1050 and 1300 A.D.  The stonework is all petrified wood.  The Park Service rebuilt this portion of the pueblo, known as room seven, in 1934.  But archeological methods have improved, and the Park Service now states that the reconstruction is substandard and very possibly inaccurate.  Photograph taken in 1991 by Howard J. Partridge.
