Los Luceros Historic Site
One of New Mexico’s most scenic and historically significant properties.
People have touched this land for thousands of years. At Los Luceros Historic Site, their memories have been preserved in the landscape, the structures, and the patterns of people's lives.
The centerpiece of Los Luceros Historic Site is a 5,700 square-foot, 18th century Territorial-style adobe home which was renovated by the Cabot Foundation in 2004 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition to the hacienda and the visitor center complex, the property contains three residences, a 19th century chapel, numerous farm buildings, apple orchards, irrigated pasture, and bosque on the Rio Grande.
New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs purchased the Los Luceros property from the family of Frank and Ann Cabot in 2008 and is working to ensure the site’s preservation and integrity in perpetuity. The department’s intent is to bring together historic preservation, education, and agricultural and environmental interests. Los Luceros is currently – and will continue to be – used as a cultural destination with interpretative exhibits and public access and a place for crop-growing and environmental studies programs. Bask in the site's picturesque 148-acre ranch and the surrounding riverbanks, ancient cottonwoods, historic buildings, apple orchards, farm animals, and rolling agricultural fields.
