Chimney Rock
national monument

Step back in time as you walk in the footsteps of the ancestral Puebloan people at Chimney Rock National Monument (CRNM). The monument is a 4,726-acre archaeological site and preserves architecture and artifacts used by the ancestral Puebloan people approximately 1,000 years ago, from about 900 A.D. to 1150 A.D. The ancestral Puebloans were an ancient culture that inhabited and traveled across areas of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado, and Chimney Rock is the northeastern gateway to their past world.
