Jemez Historic Site includes the stone ruins of a 500-year-old Indian village and the San José de los Jemez church dating to 1610. In the 17th century, the Spanish established a Catholic mission at the village. The mission was short-lived, and in time, the people abandoned the site and moved to the current location of Jemez Pueblo. The massive stone walls
were constructed about the same time the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. The heritage center contains exhibitions that tell the story of the site through the words of the Jemez people. A 1,400-foot interpretive trail winds through the site ruins.
