This Historic Park Is One Of New Mexico’s Best Kept Secrets

The Land of Enchantment may be known for its fiery chiles and scenic vistas, but did you know that part of New Mexico’s allure is its rich history? Our state has an amazing number of historic areas—both impeccably well-preserved and in varying states of dilapidation—that depict how life has changed for New Mexicans.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The historic site is open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is closed the remaining days of the week and admission is free, though donations are accepted. For additional information on the historic site, visit their website or Facebook page.
