About 50 yards upstream of the hot springs, and on the opposite side of the river, are the ruins of Ward Ranch. The old cabin burned down within the past two years, so the ruins are now hard to spot from river level. But no Native American ruins along the wilderness section of the Rio Chama that I am aware of.
