ABOUT

This ancient village is known today as Besh Ba Gowah. The term was originally given by the Apaches to the early settlement of Globe. Roughly translated, the term means “place of metal.” 

The partially restored ruins, along with the adjacent museum provide a fascinating glimpse at the lifestyle of the people who occupied this region over two centuries before Columbus discovered the “New World.”

Besh Ba Gowah offers visitors a chance to explore the ruins, a museum that houses a large collection of Salado pottery and artifacts, botanical gardens, and a gift shop.
