The Taylor-Mesilla Historic Property is amazing! ✨Welcome the newest member of our Facebook family, the Taylor-Mesilla Historic Property!

The property, located in Southern New Mexico, honors the traditions and people of New Mexico by keeping our rich culture and history alive. It is poised to become one of New Mexico’s great treasures.

Its adobe architecture and the collection of art and objects in it provide an amazing journey through New Mexico’s past. In 2003, J. Paul and Mary Daniels Taylor and their family donated the home and two attached stores to the Museum of New Mexico. While not yet open to the public, their page will provide site information and updates on its development and preservation.
