Tag Archives: Great House

After leaving Hovenweep National Monument we were headed toward Cortez, Colorado. We passed a number of ruins but decided not to visit them because they were off on dirt roads which we didn’t want to try in our van. We finally ended up at Lowry Pueblo. It was an interesting trip. We started out in the Great Sage Plain and ended up in farming country before moving back to the edge of the Sage Plain where we found the ruins. The two main attractions are the Great Kiva¬† and the Great House. The great house has been covered with a roof. The Pueblo was built about 1060 and housed up to 100 people for a century and a half. The Great House is shown below.

This is the Great Kiva.
