Kinishba is a large pueblo ruin containing nine masonry buildings constructed between 1250 and 1350 A.D. by the prehistoric 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. The area around the ruins was considered to be sacred. From it's beauty, you can see why.

Directions: Kinishba Ruins, a National Historic Landmark, is seven miles west of Whiteriver, Arizona, off AZ 73 on Fort Apache Indian Reservation.
