Martinez Hacienda

Two properties make up Taos Historic Museums. They are the Martinez de Los Martinez shown here and the Ernest Blumenschein house. Best known is the sprawling Martinez Hacienda built by legendary Padre Martinez in the early 1800s. The hacienda is a living history museum that surrounds a courtyard and houses a weaving studio where practitioners of northern New Mexico wool arts ply their craft. Signed photographs of each property as well as other Taos icons are available for sale at the Hacienda and Blumenschein House.
