presented by Southwestern Regional Director Jim Walker and Haynie Site Field Director Kellam Throgmorton from Crow Canyon Archaeological Center
The Archaeological Conservancy and our partners at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center were recently awarded the Stephen H. Hart Award for Historic Preservation from History Colorado for the Haynie Pueblo Archaeological Preserve. This project received more than 48 percent of the vote with over 1,600 votes cast! To thank our voters and members, the Conservancy and Crow Canyon are co-hosting a virtual event to celebrate this achievement! The presentation will feature presenters Jim Walker of the Archaeological Conservancy and Kellam Throgmorton of Crow Canyon Archaeological Center who will share more about the how the site was acquired, what is necessary to preserve the site, and what ongoing research tells us about its connection to Chaco culture.
Haynie Pueblo is a located in the picturesque Mesa Verde archaeological region of southwest Colorado. The Pueblo was a Chacoan outlier occupied from around 500 to 1280 A.D. The five-acre site contains two massive, multi-storied Chacoan Great Houses as well as other masonry architecture, kivas, pithouses and dense trash middens. The Archaeological Conservancy acquired the Haynie Site in 2019 with the generous support of our members and the assistance of a Colorado Historical Fund grant. Research conducted by the Crow Canyon archaeological center continues to contribute to our knowledge of the site and the people who lived there centuries ago.
