Lowry Ruin

Enjoy a self-guided interpretive tour of the Lowry Pueblo archaeological site. Lowry Pueblo is a part of Canyons of the Ancients National Park and was once home to approximately 100 people. Lowry Pueblo had a total of about 40 rooms and 8 kivas at its peak in the early 11th century, and was arranged in a roughly rectangular block, with some portions reaching as high as three stories. A great kiva, constructed outside the eastern limits of the village, is nearly 50 feet in diameter.
