Chimney Rock - Great House – United States

Chimney Rock - Great House Ruin, Ancient Building in Archuleta County, Colorado. The Great House ruins are the northernmost Chaco Culture settlement for the Ancestral Puebloan people (Anasazi.) The building has been sited to align the twin spires of Chimney rock with the moonrise during the 18.6 year Lunar Standstill cycle. The Great House and ninety other building sites near Chimney Rock lie within the San Juan National Forest. The Great House is exemplary in the care taken to build it, with evenly spaced runs of quarried sandstone blocks. The building complex was build around 1000AD during the amazing explosion of Chaco Culture influence in what is now New Mexico and parts of Arizona and Colorado. A small cabin visitor center is staffed by volunteers from mid May through the end of September. The site may only be visited in a guided walking tour. Chimney Rock website with slideshows, maps, and events. Note: See article on excavation and stabilization effort. Comments Section.
