“remnants of a Spanish mission”
This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Located 9 miles west of Mountainair, just off US-60. Abo preserves the remnants of a tall Spanish mission and the connecting structure, set against the scenic backdrop of the Manzano Mountains. A half-mile trail circles through some nearby mounds; the unexcavated remains of a pueblo. Exciting news! Renovations to the park’s Mountainair visitor center are now complete. Current plans are to move back into the visitor center and museum starting September 3rd. It is anticipated that the building will be fully operational by October. The Abo, Quarai and Gran Quivira sites and visitor centers remain open seven days a week from 9AM to 5PM. For more information call 505 847-2585.
The mission and pueblo ruins are actually on National Park Service property. Also, the residences south of the mission are privately owned and still occupied by descendants of the Sisneros family who settled there in the 1800's. This is the site of "Old Abo".
Not on private property. Although there is a private residence on the grounds, this is part of the US Forest Service.
