The Cliff Dwellers, was a reproduction of the caves
of the Stone Age natives of the Southwestern United States. Built as a similar attraction to the Cliff Dwellers at the 1893 Exposition at Chicago, the exhibit included twelve replicated structures of a Pueblo village.
A massive cliff over 100 feet in height by 250 in length, showed the ancient
ruins of the pre-historic race. These ruins were to be 'reached' by a narrow trail
up the mountain side, readily accessible to the public, where they could view at close range the abodes of this extinct race. Visitors arrived at the summit of a rather scary incline via burro and gazed at live pueblo Indians of the stone age as well as waxed figures illustrating food gathering, tool-making, etc.
Returning, visitors will find themselves in the Pueblo of the Taos, covering over five acres of ground, containing over 100 dwellings and peopled by 300 natives of the Moki and Zuni races, including men, women and children, the acknowledged descendants of the original "Cliff Dwellers."
The attraction included a tunnel that patrons descended until they entered a theater (for an additional 25 cents adults 15 cents for children). There, native Indians would perform authentic dances of the Snake and Kachina as well as showcased and sold their artistry of basket weaving, weaving, pottery and silver-work.
W. Maurice Tobin was the manager of the attraction.
