Taos County, located in the northern part of the great state of New Mexico, has a rich historical background that dates back to long before European settlement. The area is home to the Taos Pueblo, an ancient Native American community that has been continuously inhabited for over 1,000 years. The multi-story adobe buildings of Taos Pueblo are considered the oldest continuously inhabited dwellings in the United States.
Spanish explorers arrived in the region in the 16th century, and by the early 17th century, the area was formally claimed by the Spanish Empire. The Spanish established several missions, including the San Francisco de Asis Mission Church, built between 1772 and 1816, which remains an iconic symbol of the region's Spanish colonial history. The rich mixture of Native, Spanish, and Mexican cultures significantly influenced the region's art, architecture, and overall cultural heritage.
With the conclusion of the Mexican-American War in 1848, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed, and Taos County became part of the United States. The region saw rapid development in the late 19th century, largely due to the arrival of the railroad and an increased interest in the area's mining potential. Tourism also began to thrive, with the unique cultural landscape and scenic beauty of the area drawing many visitors.
One fun fact about Taos County is that it became a haven for artists and writers, such as Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe, and D.H. Lawrence, in the early 20th century. The Taos art colony continues to have a significant impact on the region's cultural identity, and the town of Taos is a vibrant arts community, with numerous galleries, art schools, and museums.
