Espanola Valley Historical Marker


Text of sign:


Espanola Valley


When it was described by Gaspar Castano de Sosa in 1591, the Espanola Valley contained about ten Tewa-speaking pueblos, 

several of which are still occupied today.  Juan de Ornate established New Mexico's first colony here in 1598.  Long on the 

northern frontier of Spanish settlement, the Valley has continuously reflected its Indian and Spanish heritage.
