Taos is a town in New Mexico with a community that’s rich in history and culture. The town was incorporated as a municipality on May 7, 1934. But this magical community started long before that, dating back to August 29, 1540, with the arrival of Capitan Hernando Alvarado. He was part of the expedition of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, who entered the Taos Valley for the first time. The name, Taos, was first used in writing in 1598, and by 1760 the town was named “Don Fernando de Taos” by the Spanish settlers.
