Immerse yourself in New Mexico History at Hacienda Vargas

March 23rd, 2014 by InnKeeper

New Mexico History at our New Mexico Bed and BreakfastNew Mexico’s history is fascinating, and has left a lasting imprint on the unique and diverse cultures found here. Algodones, where our bed and breakfast is located, was originally founded as a military garrison, and provided protection for the merchant wagon trains traveling between Santa Fe and Mexico.  It was a popular military supply depot, and was even occupied by General Kearney and the Army of the West in 1846.  Since the 17th century, travelers and adventurers exploring El Camino Real have stopped for lodging at Hacienda Vargas.   In the past, the location of our New Mexico bed and breakfast was used both as a stagecoach stop and a train station.  Our charming New Mexico bed and breakfast has been a part of New Mexico history for centuries, and is a wonderful place to spend some time if you’re fascinated by the Old West.  The owners/innkeepers of Hacienda Vargas bed and breakfast have made a firm committment to maintaining the historical ambiance found at this beautiful New Mexico bed and breakfast, ensuring its lasting place in the rich fabric of New Mexico history.
