 Mesa Verde National Park

Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300. Today, the park protects over 4,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.

Mesa Verde can be found on Wikipedia.

On a personal note: I went to Mesa Verde when I was about 13. I found all of the history there very interesting. I loved the fact that you could actually walk around the sites. It was like walking through history.
