Park of the Week: Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum
View the largest collection of Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) pottery on display in the Four Corners Region. Visit Edge of the Cedars Pueblo, a village inhabited by the ancestors of contemporary Puebloan peoples from AD 825 to 1125, and climb down a ladder to enter the 1,000-year-old kiva. In addition to permanent collections, Edge of the Cedars offers special exhibits and events throughout the year. Dynamic exhibits at Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum feature outstanding photography, fine art, current topics in archeology, and contemporary American Indian crafts.
Park facilities include a short, paved interpretive trail around the ruin, landscaping with native plants and outdoor sculptures, and picnic area.
Cowboys from nearby Bluff camped here in the late 1800s and called the site Edge of the Cedars because it sits on the edge of a natural boundary, separating a heavily forested region and a treeless landscape to the south.
