Stop in the historic village of Cerrillos, a short drive off State Highway 14 and visit the 28-room hacienda of Todd and Patricia Brown. The large adobe building was built with 65,000 hand made adobe "mud" bricks. The gift shop has fine jewelry and minerals from many locations including New Mexico & the Great Southwest. We make over 50 different products. We mine turquoise at our mining claim "The Little Chalchihuitl and variscite from our "White Angel" claim. We cut the stone, set it and sell handmade silver jewelry with stones from both claims and the LIttle Blue Bell mine. We have Turquoise Mine tours by advance reservation - contact Todd at (505) 438-3008 or by email email@example.com. The cost is $65.00 per person; we can take up to 4 people in our vehicle.The tour takes two hours and includes admission to the Mining Museum.
The Mining Museum features interesting displays on the Cerrillos Mining District; a large collection of New Mexico minerals, diaramas, photos, bottles, relics and antiques of the area. Our motto is "Beyond these doors the past lives on".
We have a barn yard Petting Zoo containing playful goats, Coco the llama, fancy chickens and pigeons - food is available in the Gift Shop to feed the animals. Truly a living hacienda. Come by and visit!
