Northwestern portion of Architectural Block 100; below Nonstructure 161; 500.3N 491E.

Structure Use

The function of Structure 158 is unknown due to a highly weathered floor surface (Surface 1). Artifacts found on remnant floor surfaces indicates that the structure may have been used as a living room.

Abandonment

Structure 158 fell out of use during the Late Pueblo II 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

Nonstructure 161 deposits covered Structure 158.
