San Geronimo, New Mexico

With its irrigated farms, common pasture, and location at an important crossroads on a branch of the Santa Fe Trail, the remote mountain village of San Geronimo exemplifies the early to mid-19th century Mexican land grant settlements of northern New Mexico. Many village buildings were constructed of regional materials – log, stone, and adobe – which residents have learned to repair, maintain, and preserve using traditional techniques. The San Geronimo Historic District was entered into the National Register of Historic Places on November 15, 1983. Images of San Geronimo, New Mexico
