Fodor's Review

More than 800 years ago, Pueblo people built this structure out of "puddled" adobe (liquid mud poured between upright wooden frames). This house is said to be the oldest in the United States—a sign on the exterior puts the date at 1646, but some say it's much older. As of this writing, plans were underway to eventually open a small museum inside.
