Montezuma Castle National Monument

The mysterious cliff dwelling known as Montezuma Castle has overlooked Arizona's Verde Valley for over 900 years. Originally thought to have been built by the ancient Aztecs, later research proved it to be the handiwork of a long-vanished people named the Sinagua. They inhabited the site for over three centuries and then simply walked away to be lost in the mists of time. In this volume, the author traces the history of Montezuma Castle through its construction, abandonment, later discovery, and the diligent efforts of many individuals and organizations to restore and preserve it for future generations. In 1906, Montezuma Castle was designated one of the country's first national monuments by Pres. Theodore Roosevelt. Arizona was still a territory at that time, six years away from becoming the 48th state in the Union.

Montezuma Castle National Monument

SET HIGH WITHIN A LIMESTONE CLIFF in Arizona's Verde Valley, the prehistoric dwelling known as Montezuma Castle has stood for hundreds of years, a witness to great changes in the surrounding cultural and natural landscapes. This book details the story of Montezuma Castle, from the first recorded visit to the Verde Valley by Spanish explorers in 1583 to the Castle's preservation in 1906 as a national monument, to subsequent management issues faced by the National Park Service. Documenting the transformation of the ruins over time, Protas explores the historical contexts that accompanied these changes. This thoughtful book considers the attitudes, values, and ideas that informed decision makers and relates the impact those individuals had on Montezuma Castle National Monument. "The history of protecting prehistory has become increasingly important for understanding the past. " -George Gumermann Director, Arizona State Museum "Once an isolated attraction off the main highway, Montezuma Castle Nafronal Monument is today one of the most highly visited monuments in fhe National Park Service system. Josh Protas's work provides an excellent review of nearby a century of preservation and protection issues.'" -Glen Henderson Superintendent, Montezuma Castle National Monument

Montezuma Castle National Monument

MONTEZUMA CASTLE, a pueblo ruin in the Verde River valley of central Arizona, has no connection with the Aztec emperor whose name it bears. The name was given by early settlers in the Verde Valley in the belief that the striking 5-story ruin with its 20 rooms had been built by Aztec refugees, fleeing from central Mexico at the time of the Spanish conquest. It follows naturally that the small lake inside a hill 7 miles away should be named Montezuma Well. While the story of the flight is known to be false, the names remain.The aboriginal builders of the Castle left no records, but they did leave broken pottery, trash, and other debris of their everyday life. The analysis of this material tells us that these people, whom we call Sinagua (see glossary), were peaceful farmers who occupied this area from the 1100's until the 1400's; that they were similar in physical type to many of today's Pueblo peoples in northern Arizona and New Mexico; and that they differed somewhat in their daily life from their neighbors in the desert to the south and in the mountains and plateaus to the north.This is their story, and we hope that it can take you back in your mind's eye to the time when their fingers left marks as they plastered the walls of Montezuma Castle, and to the time when their fires l...

Early detection and trend detection of invasive non-native plant species comprise two of the Sonoran Desert Network Inventory and Monitoring Program’s vital signs. Baseline information on the presence, location, and abundance of invasive non-native plant species is necessary to accomplish two goals: (1) to identify which invasive non-native species are not yet present in the park (early detection monitoring); and (2) to map the spatial location, distribution, and abundance of those species that already occur in the park as the basis for future trend assessment.
