5. EVOLVED BUILDINGS

The walls before you are all that is left of two different building periods. The figure to the right shows a Spanish structure that was built between 1625 and 1627 on top of the crumbling walls of at least eight pueblo rooms (grey). The dotted lines represent walls of the Spanish building (no longer visible) that extended south to the present Trail.

Pic 1. Wide walls of the Spanish structure

17th-century Spanish structures built over pre-existent pueblo rooms. Dotted lines are former walls that are no longer visible.

Did you know?

Not only did the Spanish build over existent Jemez structures, but the Jemez people repurposed structures once the Spanish were gone.
