PECOS RUINS
edited by David Grant Noble

Pecos Pueblo was an important focus of Peublo culture for hundreds of years for Europeans arrived in the Southwest. It was a strategic trading center for the Plains Indians, central to the Pueblo Revolt against the Spanish in 1680, and later an important stop for merchants on the Santa Fe Trail.
Although abandoned by the Pecos Indians in 1883, the site continued to receive a steady stream of visitors. Noted travelers and archaeologists visited and worked at the site. Their excavations unearthed many artifacts on display today at Pecos National Historic Park.
Pecos Ruins guides the visitpr, student, or armchair archaeologist through the centuries of Native American, Spanish, and Anglo presence at this historic crossroads.

PECOS PUEBLO
On the Santa Fe Trail
There is one historic place in New Mexico that I return to again and again. It is the ruined pueblo and Spanish mission of Pecos in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristos, 25 miles east of Santa Fe.
I have been there at all seasons of the year and in every kind of weather. No visit is ever quite the same.
Once on Christmas Eve, many years ago, I attended a wedding in the old, roofless church. Friends from Santa Fe brought a justice of the peace and had him perform the ceremony from the adobe platform that has one held a stone altar.
