The 45th Annual Harvest Festival took place at El Rancho de las Golondrinas Sept. 30 through Oct. 1. Las Golondrinas is considered a living museum in New Mexico. It maintains examples and activities which illustrate life in the period of Spanish rule in the Southwest during the the 18th and 19th centuries. The land was purchased in the 1930s by Leonora Curtin, who is famous for creating Santa Fe’s Native Market. The museum opened its doors to visitors in 1972.
