Kit Carson House

North Region

Constructed 1860

Kit Carson gained national fame during the Santa Fe Trail era as a scout and military leader. Originally from Missouri, Carson settled in Taos and married into the local Jaramillo family. His house on Kit Carson Road near the plaza retains its distinctive Territorial style portal and is built around an inner courtyard. The house contains some of Carsons furnishings and memorabilia, offering a glimpse into New Mexicos rough and tumble frontier history.
