In late 19th century, the stage line from Dolores, Colorado, to Monticello, Utah, crossed the area near the rim of the Dolores River Canyon. A stage stop was established near a spring at the head of the canyon, where an abundance of local stingers inspired the name Yellow Jacket. Today the post office stands as the sole reminder of Yellow Jacket's recent history. Little did the stage passengers know that they were passing by one of the most significant concentrations of prehistoric sites in the Southwest! Yellow Jacket and the area north of the San Juan drainage in southwestern Colorado are on the northern edge of the prehistoric Anasazi culture area of the San Juan River. In contrast to modem times, the prehistoric population of the Yellow Jacket area is thought to have been relatively large, as indicated by a series of archaeological ruins situated on the edge of Yellow Jacket canyon. These ruins suggest that an estimate of a peak population of 1500-3000 persons would be realistic for the Yellow Jacket area.
