Wide Ruins Chapter

Our Story

Wide Ruins is a community situated in a spectacularly scenic area. There is much history attached to the land surrounding the chapter community and if you ask any of the community residents, they will tell you that the area is a wonderful place to live. For instance, Antelope Lake is 14 miles to the northeast which offers good fishing and camping. Make sure you get your fishing license before you attempt to cast your line into the lake. 

Wide Ruins is also home to the Wide Ruins Community School which provides quality education for some of the children from the chapter community. There is some dormitory space that allows the children to gain self-determination through being given chores and responsibilities for their living quarters. The community school feeds into either the Ganado Unified School District, to the north, or the Sanders Unified School District, to the south. 

The Wide Ruins Chapter has elected officials who host monthly planning and regular chapter meetings. This is a place for the community to gather and share information and also request for assistance with their homes or for education scholarships.
