The Oldest House In America Is Hiding Right Here In New Mexico And You’ll Want To Visit
The Land of Enchantment is home to the nation’s richest history. Not only is the San Miguel Chapel our country’s oldest church, Santa Fe is the oldest capital city in the continent. Here in the beautiful old city of Santa Fe are many of the country’s oldest landmarks, and this little house on De Vargas street is the oldest home to date. This old adobe house holds the most interesting history in the state, and arguably the whole nation, and you can still walk through to see a glimpse of the past.
The Oldest House is located at 215 E. De Vargas St., Santa Fe, NM. Admission is free, and the gift shop through which you enter through is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day, though you’re welcome to look in from the outside at any time.
