History & History Related Items

Santa Rosa history:

Santa Rosa is located between Albuquerque, New Mexico and Amarillo, Texas.

The founder of Santa Rosa is Don Celso Baca. In 1879, he built, in memory of his mother, Rosa, a chapel. It is named the St. Rose Chapel. Remnants are still standing today as well as the entire Baca homesite. Santa Rosa has long been a haven for those who love the water. Among the natural attractions of Santa Rosa is the famous "Blue Hole." Many have called Blue Hole "Nature's Jewel" because of its great clarity. It is a deep natural artesian spring which remains a constant 64 degrees f. all year. The original Guadalupe County Courthouse was built in the mid-1800's. This courthouse is located 10 miles south and is open for visitors. It was the "law" for an 1800 square mile area during that time. Also located in the Santa Rosa area are the Santa Rosa Lake and State Park, the James Wallace Memorial Park and Power Dam, Park Lake and Perch Lake. The Pecos River rolls along nearby. The Puerto de Luna area along the Pecos River has an ancient adobe village with many examples of this type of village life.
The founding of Santa Rosa: 1865
