Colonial New Mexico

New Mexico – adobe buildings, Spanish tiles, squash blossom necklaces and combination plates. "Red or Green?" Images so familiar to us that we hardly notice them. Yet, so foreign to others that we frequently are "the missing state." Many turistas still think they need a passport to visit. Visit colonial New Mexico – land of placitas and haciendas, acequias and arroyos. A land where horseshoes were made of silver, hot chocolate was seasoned with chili – but not sugar and a shopping trip to Mexico City took four years. And on a darker note, it is where slavery still existed long after the Civil War. How did our culture – good and bad – almost deny us statehood? Discover the landscape and culture that still defines us today.
