Century Old Elements Bring Character To Hacienda Vargas

IMG_6436IMG_6471

Venture out to the inner courtyard of the Hacienda, past the 205-year-old Elm tree to the brick corridor leading out to the large north yard which is home to a pond, gazebo and our historic bell tower.

The bell tower, more than 110 years old, houses the original bell and years ago, acted as the community’s alarm bell and was used by the volunteer fire department.

That giant tree you passed on the way in? There’s proof it’s been providing shade for Hacienda Vargas guests since the late 1800s. An agricultural team from the University of New Mexico conducted a dendrochronology study dating the tree to over two centuries old.

Today, these two historical elements remain an integral part of the Hacienda Vargas grounds. Outdoor yoga under the elm is held in the warmer months. The bell tower is still used in celebration to announce our newly married couples and to denote time changes for retreats.

These are just a couple of features that help tell the history of our cozy B&B and give it the unique character that keeps visitors coming back time after time.
