Long Description:
A nice, little museum set up in Carson's Taos Home. It's best feature to me was it's book store, which, though small, features a fine selection of books about early Nw Mexico. When Carson died he was buried out back and a small and select cemetery was built up (or rather, dug down) around him. There is a waymark at his grave that includes a pretty good bio of him.
