Notes
Survey number HABS NM-158
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N562).
Significance: The Pueblo Revolt of 1680 and the subsequent Spanish reconquest of 1692 forced many Pueblo tribes to flee westward and seek temporary refuge with the Navajo. The Crow Canyon site is an excellent example of one of the smaller refugee sites in the area. Situated slightly below the south ridge of Crow Canyon, the site afforded the Pueblo and Navajo with a strategic view of the surrounding valley. The site contains a Pueblito of four rooms, one of which is situated on top of a detached boulder for defensive purposes. One pole from a corner shelf remains in situ in the boulder top room. The walls of the boulder top room stand slightly over six feet tall, but have collapsed on the west side. The three rooms on the ground level have fragmentary walls and roof beams have been strewn about the base of the boulder. The site, containing a mixture of Navajo and Pueblo features, was abandoned around 1750.
