Yucca House, Four Corners Ancestral Puebloan, A.D. 1150-1300, near Towaoc, Colorado

Data for this model from Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, Cortez, Colorado

The ruins of Aztec Springs Pueblo (as Yucca House was originally named by outsiders) in this1875 photograph by William Henry Jackson.

One of the largest ruins in the Four Corners region, Yucca House has not been excavated. The model presented here is very speculative based upon Crow Canyon surface data. The number of rooms surrounding each kiva shown in this reconstruction may be too great.
