Pecos National Historical Park

Located in north/central New Mexico, Pecos National Historical Park covers over six acres of land that has maintained historical significance for centuries. Here you will find ancient ruins, 19th-century ranches and a battlefield of the Civil War. One of the most iconic sites in the park is Pecos Pueblo, also known as Cicuye Pueblo. In the late 1600s, the Puebloans led a short-lived but ultimately unsuccessful revolt from the Spanish. The Puebloans slowly dwindled because of disease and conflicts with other Native American tribes, and by 1893, they had essentially abandoned Pecos Pueblo for other pueblos and areas.
