Words on a sign on the wall of the building: 

“The Ciderpress was an antique store for many years but is now a private residence.  The brick section was built by the Cartwright family and was the first garage built in Santa Fe.  The adobe section was built in the early 1940s by Juanito Lujan, a Taos Indian, for his own use.  He was the gardener and good friend of Emmy Caldwell, whose family still owns it.  The property extends to De Vargas St.  The location of the western portion of the Roque Tuedesqui house, built in 1840, 99 years old when bought by Mr. Cadlwell!”

Both sides of my family trace their roots in the Santa Fé area to the 1600s.  In the earlier years they were primarily farmers, builders, craftsmen, artists (wood carvers and weavers), and educators.  I graduated from SFHS & NMSU and received my BA & MA in Speech & Language Pathology. I divide my time between Santa Fé and the San Francisco Bay Area.
