The oldest house in America
The Spaniards were accompanied by Tlaxcala warriors, who found that the area was perfect for settlement, and established El Barrio De Analco. This house, already considered to be the oldest, managed to survive the Great Pueblo Rebellion of the early 1690s, even as the rest of El Barrio De Analco was mostly burned, and its inhabitants killed. For a time in the early 1700s, it was used temporarily as the Governor’s home, while his actual home was under repair. This house would be continually occupied by Apaches, Navajos, and descendants of the original Spanish settlers all the way up to the 1920s, when it was finally declared protected. Today it serves as a museum for the public to enjoy.
