“Very informative, guided private tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011

575-526-6293 call Mary. This is a fantastic old house, part of which is a crammed full museum of the history of Mesilla. The hostess lives in the house with her son, and gives tours. She has a bit of everything and tells a great story of her family history. Furniture, art, jewlery, religous artifacts, pictures, just everything. This is a special place, not the toy factory people bring kids to. While reservations are not required, an advance appointement or check, will insure you will not be disappointed. Tour is 1 1/2 hours, or to your needs. . We stayed longer, as we were fasinated. The address is 1875 W Boutz.
