General Location In the great tower complex.
Specific Location 23 m east-northeast of the great tower bi-wall structure.
Interpretive Type
Structure Use Few data on which to base an interpretation of use, other than the kiva architectural style. This style suggests probable ritual use, but does not preclude domestic use. The smaller-than-usual extrapolated diameter of this structure suggests that it may have been inhabited or used by a smaller-than-usual group of people.
Abandonment Prior excavation destroyed evidence of abandonment events.
Postabandonment Structure was excavated and backfilled during a Western State College field school excavation in 1931.
