The 1797 Blumenschein Home & Museum was the home of artist Ernest Blumenschein (one of the founding members of the Taos Society of Artists) in the 1920s. Today it's maintained much as it would have been when the Blumenscheins lived here. The period furniture is interesting, and the art is spectacular. Down the road a bit (you'll want to drive), the Martínez Hacienda , built in 1804, became the end of the line on the northern spur of the Camino Real. With 21 rooms, it's one of the best preserved New Mexican 'Great Houses' from that era. Cultural events are held here regularly.
