History Left A Definite Mark At This One Fascinating Spot In New Mexico
Here in New Mexico, history surrounds us. Our state is home to some of the oldest places in the country, where residents of centuries past have left their mark on the landscape. This includes dozens of ancient sites, once home to the ancestors of today’s Indigenous peoples, and you can still see evidence of the lives they lived all across the land now known as New Mexico.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
