THE EERIE MYSTERY OF A FRONTIER FORTRESS
NORTHERN NEW MEXICO in the FALL of 2020
A month in the most beautiful part of Northern New Mexico!
The vistas in this location are incredible! Fort Union National Monument, located in Mora County near Watrous, NM, was the hub of commerce, national defense, and migration at the final stretch of the Santa Fe Trail. The richly evocative traces of a post-civil war era adobe fort, it became a National Monument in 1954 under the Eisenhower administration. This location is close to historic Las Vegas, NM, the great plains, local sights like Wagon Mound and Montezuma Castle, as well as Wagon Mound, and only an hour and half away from Santa Fe, the art capital of the southwest.
Our October 2020 Residency offers:
