Tuzigoot is an ancient pueblo (village) of the Sinaqua people. It's name means "crooked water" in the Apache language.

The pueblo consisted of 110 rooms and was built about AD 1000. For unknown reasons the Sinaqua's left the area approximately 400 years later.

We visited this site with Paul and Mary. We were actually looking for Dead Horse State Park to check it out and this National Monument is on the way. I love these unexpected detours. Just for further info purposes - Dead Horse State Park is definitely the place to stay in this area.
