Description:
Soldier and priest marched side by side in the days of the Spanish Conquest, and simultaneously with the occupation of New Mexico mission churches of the Jesuit and Franciscan orders were built. The exact date of the present Santo Domingo church is hard to determine as the pueblo has been moved from one side of the Rio Grande river to the other; it has existed, however, since the Spanish Conquest.

Description:
The pueblo of Santo Domingo is located on the east bank of the Rio Grande River, two and a half miles west of Thornton, N. M., on the Santa Fe. The streets, four in number, three running at right angles to the river, are very broad and extremely picturesque. Here and there are the native ovens, piles of firewood, and the rude kilns for firing pottery. In one of the streets rises the great circular wall of the Estufa, with its ladder beams projecting far above the tops of the surrounding houses. There are many interesting features in this quaint old town, among them an old Spanish mission church in a fair state of preservation. Fred Harvey
