Kinishba is a large pueblo ruin containing nine masonry buildings constructed between 1250 and 1350 A.D. by the Mogollon. The pueblo is situated on the upper end of a grass covered valley and originally had 400-500 ground floor rooms standing two or three stories high. At its peak, Kinishba may have housed up to 1000 occupants. The pueblo was vacated in the late 14th early 15th centuries for unknown reasons.
