Over 800 years ago, Balcony House was home to the ancestral Puebloan people who created multi-storey structures within the naturally formed alcoves of the sandstone cliffs. Balcony House is one of 600 cliff dwellings which survive today. The people that built this place used materials available to them, Juniper wood and Pinyon pine for beams, sandstone carved into blocks, and mortar made from local clay shaped with their own hands.
