Mesa Verde National Park

Mesa-top and Alcove Living
Although the Puebloan used the cliff alcoves throughout the entire time they lived in Mesa Verde, the cliff dwellings themselves were not built until the final 75-100 years of occupation. For over 600 years these people lived primarily on the mesa tops.

Of 4000 ruins within the park only 600 are cliff dwellings. All of these cliff dwellings were built and occupied in A.D. 1200 and 1300.
