Montezuma's Well Camp Verde Reviews
The Hopi trace their Ancestry here Aug 23, 2010
This was believed to be the source of water supply for the Castle. Located below the castle grounds it is easily seen and accessible. The history is much more than what one sees, it is a testament to the ingenuity of the people who lived hundreds of years ago.
Half of the well is filled with spring water. Its size is a little is a little unusual and one can tell that the outlet was used to irrigate fields by the people that lived there. Inside the visitor center, information on the well confirms that the people known as the Hokokam and Sinagua built wells around the edge for irrigation purposes.
The Hopi consider the site of importance to them and other tribes and clans today trace their ancestry here.
