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. We make over 50 different products. We mine Cerrillos Turquoise at our mining claim "The Little Chalchihuitl and Variscite from our "White Angel" claim. We cut stones and set them in handmade sterling silver jewelry. In the shop you'll find turquoise rings, bracelets, pendants, money clips, tie pins and earrings. Turquoise Mine tours available by advance reservation. The cost is $75.00 per person (2-4 people). The tour takes two hours and includes admission to the Mining Museum and rock yard.
The Mining Museum ($4) features antiques of the area, displays on the Cerrillos Mining District; a large collection of New Mexico minerals, diaramas, photos, old bottles and relics. Our motto is "Beyond these doors the past lives on".
We have a barn yard Petting Zoo with several playful goats, Coco the llama, fancy chickens and pigeons - food is available ($4) in the Gift Shop to feed the animals. Truly a living hacienda. Come by and visit!
