Stop in the historic village of Cerrillos and visit the 28-room Hacienda of Todd and Patricia Brown built with 65,000 adobe bricks made by hand. The gift shop is full of minerals from many locations including New Mexico & the Great Southwest. We make over 50 different products and sell handmade silver jewelry with rare Cerrillos Turquoise from our mine claim "The Little Chalchihuitl" - NM mining claim # 166080 . We also mine white Variscite and have it & turquoise from the LIttle Blue Bell made into jewelry in the shop.
We have Turquoise Mine tours by advance reservation - contact Todd at (505) 438-3008 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost is $60.00 per person; we can take up to 4 people and use our vehicle.The tour takes two hours and includes admission to the Mining Museum.
The Mining Museum features 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!
