Taos Pueblo – New Mexico



The Taos Pueblo is the oldest continually inhibited dwellings in New Mexico - built between A.D. 1300 and 1450.



Approximately 150 people live within the Pueblo full time.



The Pueblo is made of adobe. Adobe is a clay straw mixture typically in the form of sun-dried bricks, but can be poured into forms. The walls of the pueblo are usually made very thick, sometimes 2-3 feet.



Pottery, jewelry, and other locally handmade items can be purchased in little shops located throughout the pueblo.



 Completed in 1850, the San Geronimo( St. Jerome) Chapel was built to replace the original church which had been destroyed in the Mexican-American War.
