  • Many explanations, photos and touching testimonies relating to the incredible epic of these 250 pioneers who came to colonize San Juan in 1878, I believe. The adorable and very old couple (the gentleman's grandfather was one of the heroes of this epic) who runs the museum will tell you some nice anecdotes, a video (available in several languages) recounting this feat. You will also be shown a 1912 telephone standard, an old wood-burning stove, a piano from the pioneer era, etc. Books, trinkets, local crafts for sale.

  • Stopped by to have a wander and read about the history of Escantle Heritage. Very interesting as to why it's called potato valley and how the folk settled there.  more »
