Cortez provides a convenient base of operations for professional and amateur archaeologists exploring the Four Corners region, once home to as many as 100,000 Anasazi. Hundreds of sites related to this ancient tribe are within a few hours' drive. Mesa Verde National Park, Hovenweep National Monument, Lowry Ruins, the Cortez Cultural Center and the Anasazi Heritage Center are just a few of the local attractions. Cortez was settled in 1881 by farmers attracted by the Dolores River. Founded in 1886, the town lay just outside the orbit of the mining boom in the San Juan Mountains and instead became a trade center for the local ranches and farms, growing enough to become the seat of Montezuma County. The area also benefited as a summer grazing ground for Texan catde herds. As sporadic periods of natural gas exploration gradually ceased, tourism by necessity has been a longstanding focal point of the local economy.
