Locator Map for San Buenaventura and San Isidro Missions at Gran Quivira

This topographic map shows the layout of the Gran Quivira site with the locations of San Buenaventura and San Isidro bolded. The numbers on the contour lines indicate the number of feet above sea level of each point of the line. Thus, the mission structures all sit on ground between 6640 and 6660 feet above sea level. Of particular interest is the proximity of a traditional kiva to San Isidro.

Gran Quivira (also known as Las Humanas) is one of three pueblo missions making up the Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument in New Mexico.

Drawn in 1986 by Jean Pike as a part of the Historic American Buildings Survey. Drawing was downloaded from the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division Washington, D.C. and photo edited by the Florida Center for Instructional Technology.
