Spruce Tree House, G4803
“Spruce Tree House”<br />

<br />
	Spruce Tree House is the third largest cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde.  Constructed in the 13th century by the ancient Puebloans, the structure contains 130 rooms and 8 kivas or ceremonial chambers.  It is believed to be the residence for 60-80 people.  Spruce Tree House has suffered little deterioration because a large natural overhang protects it. Overlooks from above offer superb views. <br />
