Salmon Ruins is an Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) site built by architects from the Chaco culture in 1088. The village was occupied until 1288 and had up to 300 inhabitants. Excavations went on from 1971-1978, revealing unique architecture and artifacts now available for study. In addition to exploring the site, you can also visit the homestead built by the Salmon family who protected the site for many years, a series of replica habitations representing groups who are important to the region but who never lived on the grounds, and museum displays indoors to help you understand it all.
Entrance to the grounds is permitted through the museum ONLY. The grounds are closed when the museum is closed.
