Albert Porter Pueblo

Legacy Project


Albert Porter Pueblo (Site 5MT123) is the site of an Ancestral Pueblo village located in what is now southwestern Colorado near the modern town of Yellow Jacket, and was nominated to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999. In 2000, The Archaeological Conservancy granted Crow Canyon Archaeological Center permission to conduct a two-year testing project at Albert Porter Pueblo. Testing began in 2001 and continued through 2002. After obtaining permission from the Conservancy, Crow Canyon conducted an additional two years of testing; excavation was completed at the end of the 2004 field season.
