Bishop’s Lodge

Evangeline Chavez 2012

Bishop Lam’sy private chapel, Tesuque, New Mexico

Bishop Lamy worked on his little ranch, the Villa Pintoresca, which he had begun to acquire, in bits and pieces, in the Little Tesuque Canyon in 1853. His lodge, on a little hill with a splendid view of the distant Jemez Mountains, consisted of a small dwelling attached to his tiny, private chapel. Now many visitor’s stay at the lodge for its tranquility and beautiful views.

  2. Oh, i like this. I live in Santa Fe, and I was just reading about this chapel in the Santa Fe Foundation book on the historical properties here. I just want to give a thanks to the Thorpe family for restoring and keeping this chapel in great shape. Thanks, Moo! (she’s wonderful 🙂 ).

    • There is so much history on this place. One of these days I would like to stay a few days and enjoy the beauty, and peace it offers.
