Salmon Ruins / Heritage Park
The park is comprised of eight habitation units representing human occupation of the San Juan Valley for thousands of years. Tree-rings from the site date the Salmon Ruins between 1088 and 1095 A.D., a very short period in view of the size of the huge structure. By the mid 1100s, after approximately 60 years of occupation, the Salmon Ruins were abandoned by its Chacoan occupants.
Travel 10 miles east of Farmington on Highway 64 to Salmon Ruins and you’ll find Heritage Park.
