Roof Replacement Project
WE DID IT!
Thanks to our volunteers, friends, donators and Freeport McMoRan we will soon begin our roof restoration on the Mimbres Culture Heritage Site Wood House roof! Five years of hard work, generous donators and a grant from the mine, our goal and dream is now a reality. We will keep you all posted on the progress once work begins. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
The Mimbres people lived here about 1,000 years ago, and as far back as 1883, the site has attracted the interest of archaeologists.
In 1929-30, the first scientific excavation was led by Paul Nesbitt of the Logan Museum.
Dig up detailed information about the Mimbres people, their culture and artwork, other archaeological sites in New Mexico, and more. Use these links to other resources and begin your own expedition.
The Mattocks Ruin Site and other features of the MCHS are a fragile and irreplaceable part of southwest New Mexico’s exciting past. Please join with us and support our efforts to preserve and develop the Mattocks Ruin.
