More Information about Mesa Verde:

 

Mesa Verde National Park is a U.S. National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Colorado. It is the largest archaeological preserve in the United States. The park was created in 1906 by President Theodore Roosevelt to protect some of the best-preserved cliff dwellings in the world, or as he said, "preserve the works of man". It is the only cultural National Park set aside by the National Park System. It occupies 81.4 square miles (211 km2) near the Four Corners and features numerous ruins of homes and villages built by the Ancestral Puebloan people, sometimes called the Anasazi. There are over four thousand archaeological sites and over six hundred cliff dwellings of the Pueblo people at the site.

 

By the year 750 the people were building mesa-top villages made of adobe. In the late 1190s they began to build the cliff dwellings for which Mesa Verde is famous. The cliff dwellings, which are structures built within caves and under outcroppings in cliffs, include Cliff Palace, thought to be the largest cliff dwelling in North America.
