    The first photo here shows the entrance to Besh Ba Gowah. This was originally a long roofed corridor which led to the largest structure and the central plaza. Jewelry, pottery and other artifacts found here indicate the central plaza was one of the main areas for trading and gathering with the other villagers. Photos 2 and 3 show the restored largest structure in the park. Photo 4 shows another restored home. Several tips giving more details about Besh Ba Gowah follow.

    One place in the Globe area you should not miss is the Besh Ba Gowah Archeological Park. This park shows how archeologists discover, recover and can rebuild sites. They have restored parts of a 1200 Salado Village. While doing the excavation and study of the area they also discovered the remains of a 900 AD Hohokam Settlement. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for seniors. Children under 12 are free. Hours are 9 AM to 5 PM year round.
