Really enjoyed this little piece of history, Lots of artifacts, tools, and other items from 200 years ago. Self paced tour through the 21 rooms reveals a different aspect of life here at the time.

The hacienda is as it was in the 19th century which gives a good perspective of the was life was during that time. The lady who greeted us gave us a good overview also.

This is a large house built in the 1800s when Cheyennes were attacking in the area. It is open for tours, but it does not have a restaurant. This attraction is misplaced.

The exhibits within the structure have been improved and illustrate Spanish colonial life very nicely.

This is a little off the beaten path, but well worth it. I believe it was the first home in Taos, but if not, certainly one of the oldest structures there. Enjoyed seeing how they lived.
