Kit Carson's Home

Christopher "Kit" Carson purchased a house in Taos in 1843, where he lived with his third wife, the former Josefa Jaramillo until 1867.  Today, it is a museum, located close to the center of Taos.  The first picture is from the house's bedroom, which includes a bench, a fireplace, and a cradle.

The house's parlor includes a sewing machine.  Josefa Carson had one of the first sewing machines in New Mexico territory.  This one is a more recent model.

The house's courtyard includes an adobe stove and a table with benches.

The courtyard also includes another bench and an old wheel.

Besides the museum's website, linked above, there's also some information at Taos(dot)org.
