Significance: Mesa Verde National Park was established in 1906 to preserve prehistoric cliff dwellings; however, a group of significant historic buildings also occupies the park. The Superintendent's Residence (1921), Park Headquarters Building (1923), Post Office (1923), Museum (1923-24) and Ranger Club (1925) at Mesa Verde are the first buildings designed by the National Park Service to be based on the local native cultural traditions.
