This Quintessential New Mexico House Is One Of The Oldest In The Whole Nation

Santa Fe is a city of old. Officially settled in 1609, it is the oldest capital city in North America. The San Miguel Chapel is the nation’s oldest church. Along with the church, a tiny adobe on De Vargas Street is said to be the Oldest House. Whatever the building’s claim to fame, it has a long and curious history.
