cerrillos new mexico
     Accessible from State Highway 14 commonly called the Turquoise Trail,  Cerrillos is on the scenic road from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, closer to Santa Fe.  While it was once seriously considered as the capitol of New Mexico, today Cerrillos, with its dirt streets, is a picturesque reminder of the Old West. It is home to Broken Saddle Riding Company, Mary's Bar, Cerrillos Station, Black Bird Saloon, Bill Skrips Studio, St. Joseph Church, a children's park,  Cerrillos Hills State Park and visitor center with 5 miles of hiking, biking and riding trails, Cerrillos Community Church and Casa Grande Trading Post, Mining Museum & Petting Zoo, a Post Office and Ortiz Mountain Health Center. The Cerrillos Historical Society works to preserve the area history with this website.
     The Mining Museum contains artifacts from the Cerrillos Mining District and American Old West with examples of rare Cerrillos turquoise on display and for sale. Movies filmed in Cerrillos include ShootoutYoung Guns, Outrageous Fortune and the Nine Lives of Elfego Baca.
