BLOOMFIELD, N.M. (AP) – Salmon Ruins employees are working to preserve history at the Chacoan site with help from a $26,400 state grant and a $28,000 match from the National Park Service.

The Daily Times reports that site officials are still working on repairs that date back to major excavation efforts in the 1970s.

The museum and heritage park’s executive director, Larry Baker, says the money will go a long way toward getting much more work done.

Work on 26 wall areas at the 22-acre site began in May and is expected to be complete by Aug. 1.

Some of the structures being repaired date back to 1088 A.D.
