Structure Use

Structure 141 is a masonry surface room that most likely functioned as a living room. The structure was constructed with a T-shaped doorway in the west wall, suggesting a domestic use of the structure.

Abandonment

Structure 141 fell out of use during the Late Pueblo III period. The primary beams were removed from the roof and the remaining construction sediments and secondary beams were collapsed directly on to the structure floor.

Postabandonment

Natural wind and water sediments accumulated over the collapsed roof sediments.
