Explore the remains of a pueblo village built between 1250 and 1350 A.D. by the pre-Columbian Mogollon Culture.
Kinishba Ruins National Historic Landmark is a large pueblo ruin containing nine masonry buildings constructed centuries ago by the pre-Columbian Mogollon culture. The pueblo is situated on the upper end of a grass covered valley and originally had 400-500 ground floor rooms standing two or three stories high. At its peak, Kinishba may have housed up to 1000 occupants. The pueblo was vacated in the late 14th-early 15th centuries for unknown reasons. Visitors to Kinishba Ruins must check in at the museum at Fort Apache, where interpretive guides are available. Admission to the museum and historic park includes access to the ruins.
