The Old Spanish Trail & Taos History
Shows on the history of the trail fom New Mexico to California long used by the Utes and other tribes
The "Old Spanish Trail" was used by Mexican and US traders from about 1829 to 1848 to bring goods from New Mexico to California and back. The multiple routes of the trail followed paths established by the Utes and other tribes for many years. 10 of the shows below are from a lecture series at the Taos Library in the spring of 2009 and funded by the L E D Foundation through the Old Spanish Trail Association in partnership with ARTES. Other talks were held in 2008 at the Taos Library and at the meeting of the Old Spanish Trail Association at Okay Owingeh in June 2008.

We also include Bob Romero's Historia de Taos for a great background on the region's history.

For information about becoming a member of the Taos Chapter of the Old Spanish Trail Association contact Lloyd Rivera at 575-758-1213.
