Notes
Survey number HABS NM-168
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N568).
Building/structure dates: 1749 initial construction
Significance: The Pueblitos are small multi-roomed masonry dwellings found in the Navajo homeland, or Dinetah region of northwest New Mexico. Dating from the early 17th century, the pueblitos are significant indicators of the complex social relations that existed among the Navajos, Pueblos and other tribes, and the Spaniards. Constructed between 1749 and 1753, the two room Gould Pass Pueblito sits on a sandstone bench and has expansive views to the north, east and south. Several other pueblitos including Adolfo Canyon (NM-170) and Gomez Canyon (NM-171) can be seen from the site and are visible through loopholes. Gobernador Knob, the sacred emergence point of the Navajo, can also be seen from the site. A semicircular depression in the entrance lintel, which may have held a swinging door in place, along with interior peg holes in the plastered walls and a roof made of vigas and flat sandstone slabs are significant features found at Gould Pass Pueblito.
