The preserved ancient village at Anasazi Indian Village State Park was one of the largest Anasazi communities in Utah west of the Colorado River. Known as the Coombs Site, the village was occupied from 1050 to 1200 A.D. and may have been abandoned due to fire or drought. Part of the ancient village has been reconstructed and visitors can go inside the L-shaped abode. A brief excavation period unearthed about 100 buildings, plus thousands of artifacts which are on display in the park’s museum. The state park was officially established in 1960.
