The Sinagua Indians probably first began erecting buildings on this long hill by the Verde River before 1000 A.D., but construction really began in earnest in the mid 1200s.  The pueblo was originally two stories in parts, containing an estimated 77 rooms on the ground floor.  It featured few exterior doors, relying mostly on roof openings for interior access.  Photograph taken in 1991 by Howard J. Partridge.
