land on which the Taos Territorial Compound is located is part
of the original 17,360-acre claim of the "Pueblo of Taos",
surveyed in 1858 by John W. Garretsen for the United States Congress.
At that time the New Mexico Territory was sparsely populated and
Taos was home to legendary fur trader and frontiersman Kit Carson.
In 1864 President Abraham Lincoln signed a hand written order
granting the General Land Office the authority to parcel out the
large claim thus allowing smaller tracts be sold to settlers and
developed. Later that year Santiago Martinez acquired the corner
lot for the price of "one cow and five pesos."
