Los Cerrillos, New Mexico

LADY OF GUADALUPE BY Evangeline Chavez

Before the Spanish arrived, the Native Americans had mined lots of turquoise in the mineral rich hills around  Los Cerrillos. Spanish  Turquoise mined here  made its way into the Spanish Crown Jewels.

During the 1800’s, there were 4 hotels and 21 saloons in operation in Los Cerrillos. Many buildings still stand.
