Kinishba is a large pueblo ruin
containing nine masonry buildings constructed between 1250 and
1350 A.D. 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.
