Hot Well Fact Sheet

A pottery fragment at Hot Well

All that remains of the Hot Well pueblo is the foundation, which is buried beneath the sand, and a few pebbles and bits of broken pottery. The red-and-blue fragment is an example of El Paso Polychrome, which was produced by the people of Hot Well and nearby pueblos.
