Mesa Verde National Park was established by
Congress in 1906, and offers some of the best preserved archeological
sites in the country. Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers
a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who
made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300.
Today, the park protects over 4,000 known archeological sites, including
600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best
preserved in the United States. Mesa Verde National Park is open
year-round, but some facilities, tours, and access to archeological
sites are seasonal. Mesa Verde National Park is an excellent summer
destination for visitors with an interest in history and archeology as
well as the outdoors.
