Heritage Area Map

On October 12, 2006, Congress passed Public Law 109-338, which established the Northern Río Grande National Heritage Area, comprising the counties of Río Arriba, Santa Fe, and Taos in north-central New Mexico. Heritage Area designation culminated nearly 20 years of community efforts to identify ways to conserve and sustain the area’s life ways, languages, folk arts, and sacred spaces, as well as, its architecture and spectacular natural and scenic landscape.
