This hidden nook is well worth time exploring for learning and living! The San Elizario Historic Art District is easy to miss, but is an exquisitely preserved piece of history. It is the site of the First Thanksgiving, 1598--and after that punishing cross of the dry Chihuahua Desert by the still-continuing Northward migration, conquistadors, settlers, immigrants, travelers are ALWAYS grateful to reach the cool, fresh waters of the Rio Bravo/Rio Grande! Located in San Elizario, Texas, about 10 miles/16kilometers East of El PasoTX/Cd.JuarezMEX on the Socorro Road/Farm Road 258, this zone is historically accurate, the first seat of El Paso County, and site of the only jail Billy the Kid ever broke INTO! Veterans are remembered in the plaza of the Presidio Chapel (it is not a mission), and the stagecoach building now houses art galleries, which abound in easy walking distance. A walking tour of is highly recommended, as well as a visit to the Los Portales Museum & Information Center. Attend a production at the Adobe Horseshoe Theatre, where you can bring in eats. You won't starve either; Los Banditos Restaurant and Cafe Madrid offer the best meals and coffee you could ever want. I highly recommend spending at least a few hours here, absorbing the history and visiting with locals.
