Curtis wrote about this: "With the possible exception of Sia, Acoma possesses the oldest church among the pueblos. Its bell is dated 1710, but the massive structure may have been erected as early as 1699. (See Volume XVI, pages 170-171.): The Keres village of Acoma is the oldest continuously occupied settlement min the United States. Perched on the top of a mesa some three hundred and fifty few above the surrounding valley, accessible by difficult trails partly cut in the solid rock of the precipices, it is no less picturesquely placed than Walpi."
