A friend, visiting from out of state, and I got a personal tour of this charming historic adobe homestead. Our docent, Mary, was very informative about the family's lifestyle and New Mexico history. It was a wonderful trip.

One of the most interesting historical sites in the ABQ area, the tour lasts about 1.5 hours. Owned by the historical society, the docents are engaged and well versed in local lore. You can also visit the old church and cemetery in the same area. There is a chapel, church, blacksmith area - a complete compound to explore.

Now run by art museum where I picked up a clearly modified schedule, but it too was wrong. They now close December and January as posted after a 30 minute drive there. So call since all three source that should have provided accurate info were wrong! Truly disappointing.

Casa San Ysidro is a gem of living history for the Spanish and Mexico Southwest. Lovingly restored it provides a detailed history of how our ancestors lived and worked. The rooms, the buildings, the artifacts, the attention to detail brings the 1700 and 1800's truly alive. The docents who lovingly care for this treasure make the experience what it is.... More

It is set across the street from the old Catholic Church that is now a community center. The only problem is openly only a few times a year for the public, but I... More
