K-486-It is estimated by historians that Coro-
nado crossed the Pecos River near the present site
of Santa Rosa, New Mexico, on his journey of
discovery in 1540-41. With Spanish colonization
Santa Rosa became a lazy village of the plains,
the natives tending their cattle and sheep-to
this day it is quaint and interesting. With the
completion of Highway 66 the Old Town has
taken on new vigor and growth, being one of
the most important stopping points between
Albuquerque, N. M. and Amarillo, Texas.
