La Casa Vieja de Analco, Oldest house in America, Santa Fe, New Mexico 2_2
New Mexico
The Oldest House in the United States is in Santa Fe New Mexico’s Barrio Analco. The word “analco” means ”across the water” in the language of the Tlaxcalans, the Indians who arrived from Mexico with the first Spanish settlers under the leadership of Juan de Onate in 1598. The Tlaxcalan Indians, who had come with him from Mexico, settled on this higher ground just above the Santa Fe River. Tree-rings date the house to about 1650. It could be as old as 1200s AD. It’s built on the site ruins of older Pueblo settlements which had been abandoned. The Tlaxcalans and Spanish who settled along the river probably followed the practice of the Pueblo people and used the land down to the river for farming.

More About New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern region of the United States. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, it has also been part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory. Among U.S. states, New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 45% (2008 estimate), being descendants of Spanish colonists and recent immigrants from Latin America. It also has the third-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska and Oklahoma, and the fifth-highest total number of Native Americans after California, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas. The tribes represented in the state consist of mostly Navajo and Pueblo peoples. As a result, the demographics and culture of the state are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultural influences. At a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_mexico]
