Yep, that's the one the National Parks Service knows so the Colorado site being named Chimney Rock National Monument (per the White House press release) will cause confusion, not unlike Mt. Wilson and Wilson Peak. Think it would have been better to name it Pueblo National Historic Park or such like they did for the Nez Pierce as it's about more than the rock.
Odd that the Chimney Rock National Historic Site site at www.nps.gov is down.
The above is by Jackson of Mt. Holy Cross fame.
