Yucca House Information

Among the largest archaeological sites in Colorado, the Yucca House National Monument, an ancient community center, is a portal into Puebloan society.

Yucca House is located in Southwest Colorado between the towns of Towaco and Cortez, and acted as an important community center for the Ancestral Puebloan people from A.D. 1150-1300.

The long-term preservation of Yucca House ensures that archeologists will be able to continue studying Ancestral Puebloan society and what caused them to migrate from this region in the late 1200s.Currently, there are no facilities or fees at Yucca House.
