Historic Preservation

  • The Wharton Esherick Museum

    The Wharton Esherick Museum celebrates and preserves the legacy of American artist Wharton Esherick, who worked primarily in wood to create furniture, furnishings, utensils, interiors, buildings and more.

  • Georgia O’Keeffe’s historic adobe home and studio, Abiquiú

    The house inspired more than two dozen paintings: a door through the patio wall attracted her attention on a daily basis and she painted it more than twenty times.
