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.

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.




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.
