Martinez Hacienda, also known as Hacienda de los Martinez, is a Taos County, New Mexico hacienda built during the Spanish colonial era. It is now a living museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Site of the early 20th century homes and studios of E.I. Couse and J.H. Sharp, founding members of the Taos Society of Artists. Gardens, 1830s chapel, 1930s machine shop and lab, brand-new research center, and galleries with exhibitions on the 2+ acre campus.
The 160-acre ranch is located twenty miles north of Taos, New Mexico, off Highway 522 near San Cristobal at 8,600 feet. An ancient Kiowa Indian trail, still used to travel from Taos Pueblo to the red clay pits in Questa by the Taos Pueblo natives, crosses vertically through the property. Under the 1955 Last Will and Testament of D.H. Lawrence’s widow Frieda, it was entrusted to the University of New Mexico (UNM) for the purpose of creating a public memorial to the world-renowned writer.
Established as a memorial to Millicent Rogers, whose inspiration, patronage, and collections form the cores of its holdings.
