San Lazaro

Santa Fe, New Mexico
County of Santa Fe.
National Register Number: 66000490
Resource type: Site.
The threat level was Unknown in
Congressional District: NM-3 Certified Local Government: NO

Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 19, 1964):
San Lazaro consists of the ruins of two pueblos, one prehistoric and the other a planned historic pueblo, which together represent the largest ruin in this area. The ruins thus offer opportunities for research into the development and history of Puebloan peoples in the Galisteo Basin.

One of the private owners is excavating the historic ruins on his property, about 10% of the Landmark.

The prehistoric pueblo on the west side of the Arroyo del Chorro, which includes the 17th century Spanish Mission complex, is on land administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The BLM has stabilized areas of the pueblo that are in danger of erosion and ensures that its portion of the site is protected from vandalism and unlawful excavation.

Recommendation/Change since last report:
The New Mexico State Historic Preservation Office and National Park Service should continue to try to meet with the private owner to educate him about the need to preserve the Landmark's cultural resources to retain the historical significance of the property.
