El Moro National Monument - Trail to Atsinna Pueblo - Summer

Atsinna Pueblo was constructed in about A.D. 1275 and was occupied until about A.D. 1350. There are about 875 rooms in the pueblo and, at its peak, Atsinna may have housed more than a thousand people. Both square and round kivas are present in the complex and show the influence of several different cultures during the life of the pueblo. No one knows for certain where the occupants went, but it is believed that the nearby present-day Zuni people are probably their direct descendants.
