Imagine a place where technology does not exist. There are no smart phones, e-readers, computers, Internet connections or even telephones. It’s a place where people cultivated gardens to grow food to feed the family, raised livestock and depended on wood to heat their homes.
Such a place may seem like a distant memory or something out of a story about the Wild West, but it does exist. It’s called El Rancho de las Golondrinas and it’s located on the outskirts of Santa Fe, tucked away from the interstate traffic and hustle and bustle of downtown. Located on 200 acres of farmland, the living history museum is dedicated to showing visitors how 18th and 19th century New Mexicans lived.
