A dream of Mesa Verde NP superintendents for years, new VC about to become reality
A long-held dream of superintendents at Mesa Verde National Park is about to come true. Construction workers are putting the finishing touches on the Mesa Verde National Park Visitor and Research Center, a $12.1 million facility set to open November 26.
Unlike the existing Far View Visitor Center, Mesa Verde’s gateway to the park, the new center is clearly visible as you turn south off U.S. Highway 160, in southwest Colorado. The sleek, low-slung building sits perfectly aligned with Point Lookout, the dramatic butte that announces the park’s entrance.
