Ruins at Edge of the Cedars State Park.

Edge of the Cedars State Historical Park is the site of an Anasazi Indian ruin and a modern museum facility. Edge of the Cedars was established as a state historical monument in 1974. In late 1978 the museum facility was completed and opened to the public. It is operated by the Utah State Division of Parks and Recreation.

In 1970, the Edge of the Cedars ruin was placed on the Utah State Register of Historic Places, and in 1971 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The museum deals with the various cultures that have influenced the San Juan County area of southeastern Utah. These include the prehistoric Anasazi Indians, the Navajo Indians, the Ute Indians, and early Anglo settlers. Facilities at the museum include rest rooms, two exhibit halls, an auditorium, research and work rooms, offices, and a contemporary Indian crafts demonstration area and shop. There is picnicking, with drinking water and modern restrooms.


Follow signs from U.S. 191 in the city limits of Blanding for one mile to the Park.
