This tour includes six residences and public buildings in the village of Galisteo. Participants will drive to the historic village of Galisteo to meet for the talk and tour that begins at 1pm on Sunday, September 8. The tour is scheduled to start with with a lecture by a local historian and writer Lucy Lippard at the Community Center on the history of the region, its inhabitants, and historic homes and buildings. Lippard will discuss the Galisteo Basin’s original migrations & settlements, Galisteo Basin’s Native American settlements, the advent of the Spanish Era, and the homes of Galisteo. Following the lecture, participants will be given a schedule for their tour and will follow their designated route and finish with a reception at the La Sala de Galisteo with refreshments and snacks.
