Buried City Fact Sheet

Historic marker at Buried City

The State of Texas erected this marker at Buried City in 1936. It reads in part: "These pueblo ruins were built by the Panhandle Pueblo Indians who were agriculturists, stone house builders, pottery and basket makers.... Some archaeologists and historians agree that the well-built stone houses were in ruins when Coronado explored this region in 1541."
