Consisting of more than 52,000 acres of Federal land, Mesa Verde National Park is located in southwestern Colorado. Mesa Verde ("green table" in Spanish) was created in 1906 by an act of Congress in order to preserve the ruins of ancient villages. These villages consist of mesa top sites and cliff dwellings built into the sides of the canyons by Native Americans living there between 1 and 1300 A.D
