Located in a remote corner of New Mexico's northwest, halfway between Farmington and Albuquerque, lies one of the most exceptional concentrations of ancient Native American dwellings. Chaco Culture National Historical Park preserves 15 major complexes and nearly 4,000 archeological sites. Beginning in 850 A.D., the Chaco Culture survived here for 400 years. With no written records, the Chacoan history is pieced together from discarded fragments.
