Historic Information and Facts

If the inconclusive date of construction (1825) for the Kit Carson House can be established, there is a history of over 175 years of occupancy to be documented within this Historic Structure Report. From the broad view of the history of the structure, two shaping forces emerged which resulted in an important cultural resource being preserved and made available for visitors to learn and from which to enjoy.

Through the preservation of a single cultural resource, important on many levels to the history of Taos, visitors are able to learn about the history of a well-known Mountain Man, Army General and Masonic Lodge member, Christopher Houston "Kit" Carson. In addition, they are exposed to the simplicity of architecture, finishes and lifestyle setting for a family living in that era.
