Historical Information

The area of Agua Fria near Santa Fe, New Mexico, dates back to 1300 B.P. when the Pindi Indians occupied the north side of the Santa Fe river bank, commonly known as Pueblo Quemado. Spanish soldiers, ranchers, and farmers settled in the area in the 1700s. Agua Fria Village was designated a "Traditional Historic Community" by Santa Fe County in 1995. The Agua Fria Village Association was formed as a non-profit corporation in 1994, for the purpose of unifying the residents and property owners of the historic traditional Village of Agua Fria. The Association speaks for and officially represents the Village to public agencies. Its purpose is to protect and preserve the historical community and the character and property within it. Olivia Tsosie (see link to her papers below) was the founder of the Agua Fria Village Association.
