This is the oldest multi-storied Pueblo structure. It was built between 1000 and 1450 AD and people still live in it today. Each room has its own entrance, even the ones on the 2nd and 3rd stories. Taos Pueblo was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1992. Because people still live there they designated it as the first living heritage site. It’s one of 8 cultural heritage sites in the United States (other cultural heritage sites close to Taos Pueblo include Chaco Culture National Historic Park and Mesa Verde National Park).
