“Pueblo Bonito, the largest and best known Great House in Chaco Culture National Historical Park, northern New Mexico, was built by ancestral Pueblo people and occupied between AD 828 and 1126.” (wikipedia)
In 1936, the CCC Indian Division (CCC-ID) began an important ruins restoration project. The prehistoric city of Pueblo Bonito had suffered from extreme weather and temperature. Native Indian workers in the CCC replaced walls and veneer to stabilize the area.The city remains an important site today.
