A memorial of national significance, this memorial was constructed in 1971 and is dedicated to the lives of those lost in Vietnam. Inside the memorial, the curving walls enclose a nondenominational chapel and lead to a tall, narrow window which overlooks the tranquil Moreno. A 6,000 square foot visitor's center is also on site which features a history of conflict display, videos, and an archive center.
There are many communities and tribes in Native America, Taos being one of them. The Taos Pueblo is the ancient dwelling place of the Pueblo people. Estimated to be around 1000 years old, the pueblo was an important trading location for the native peoples of the surrounding area. In the early 20th Century, the area was known for its art colony which attracted visitors like Ansel Adams and Georgia O'Keefe. Today, the multi-level adobe houses and structures are the most famous feature of this traditionally secretive pueblo. The many families still live in a more-or-less traditional manner, and the pueblo houses many artisan shops for visitors. Taos Pueblo is a National Historic Landmark and an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit the website for information about visiting the pueblo.
