El Rancho de las Golondrinas: Living History in New Mexico’s La Ciénega Valley
By Carmella Padilla and Jack Parsons (Photographer)
"El Rancho de las Golondrinas (The Ranch of the Swallows), a Spanish Colonial living history museum located in La Ciénega, New Mexico, just south of Santa Fe, has enchanted and educated visitors with its natural beauty, annual festivals, and special events since its establishment as a museum in 1972. This book gives an account of the museum, including biographical sketches, histories, and photographs."
About El Rancho de las Golondrinas:
"The rancho was home to the Vega y Coca family and their descendants for generations until it was acquired in 1932 by Leonora Scott Muse Curtin and her daughter, Leonora Frances 'Babsie' Curtin. Leonora Scott Muse Curtin maintained a lifelong interest in the art, archaeology, and cultures of Spanish and Native American New Mexico and passed that love to her daughter. The younger Leonora was known for the founding of Santa Fe’s Native Market in an effort to save and reestablish traditional craft forms and techniques, and to provide local artisans with a source of income during the Great Depression.
Leonora Frances married Yrjo Alfred (Y.A.) Paloheimo in 1946 and the pair began to transform the ranch property into a place where visitors could physically engage with the rich culture of the region. Due to their vision, the couple restored the existing structures on the ranch, erected new period structures, and moved in other historic buildings from the area."
