Leon Gaspard House
Posted August 31, 2016, by Alya (alusia131 [at] aol [dot] com)

Current address is: 615 Raton Rd. Taos NM. We went there a few weeks (August, 2016) ago thinking it was a museum, but no, it is now a private residence. The small adobe buildings and sheds in the back of the main building are being rented out by the owner of the main house. Do you know who currently owns this property? Any information when it went up for sale and what it sold for? What happened to all of Gaspard's and Dora Kaminsky's artwork and furniture? Is it still registered as a historic landmark? I could email you a photo of the current sign
