Yucca House National Monument, Cortez Reviews - Write a Review

  • A bit dissapointing because picture on Google maps is very misleading. This monument is all natural. No excavations. Signs for private property are for land around road leading to monument. Parking area is in front of farmer's garages. It takes a sense of true archaeology to appreciate this place.

  • Giving a 5 star to nullify the ignorants 1 star ratings on here. The site is largely unexcavated, hence the not much to see. Nonetheless a piece of American history.

  • Not worth your time!!!! The picture looks better than the actual wall. If you are visiting for a cancellation stamp, turn around and just go to the Colorado visitor's center because there is no stamp on site. Once we found it, which took a while because there are no signs, it took literally 30 seconds to see the whole thing.

  • Found nothing but "No Trespassing " on a gate after a long drive down a gravel road through a private farm/ranch. There's nothing there.

  • HUGE waste of time. Just get a stamp at the welcome center. Look at a picture here on Google and call it good. Trust me.
