Two large kives were set up on the big open area, a tower (s) were erected in a main space block, and a handful of other kives were erected around it and around the area blocks. Although Chaco Canyon consists of a variety of structures of unprecedented size in the region, the canyon is just a small piece within the large, interconnected area that formed the Chacoan Civilization. The canyon was located on the north side of the Pueblo, south of the Pueblo Bonito Canyon, and although it is little, it contains a a great deal of buildings used for the building and construction of pueblos and other structures, in addition to buildings and buildings of different sizes and shapes.

The ancient ruins of Chaco Canyon have been painstakingly excavated over the centuries and are now administered by a culture that was active for more than 2000 years, from the late 19th century to the early 20th. The ruins present a substantial challenge to conservation, as eight miles of stone walls have actually been protected within the 34,000-hectare park. Funding restraints have created considerable difficulties in preserving the architectural ruins of Chaco, "stated Dr. John D. Schmitt, director of the National Historic Conservation Workplace of the National Forest Service.
