Notes
Survey number HABS NM-169
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N569).
Building/structure dates: 1733 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. Three of the four rooms of the Hill Road Pueblito are in excellent condition. Original plaster is still present in several areas on the walls. The structure shows three construction periods between ca. 1733 and 1741. The original two rooms were built on a small boulder outcrop; a two story third room was later added on a lower part of the same outcrop. A later fourth room, now in rubble, was added to the side of the third room. The pueblito was probably occupied until the mid 1700's when the Navajo moved south and west.
