The Bond House Museum

The anchor for Plaza de Espanola is the historic Bond House, now a museum that highlights the transition of Espanola from frontier outpost to commercial center. Until the coming of the railroad in 1880, the Hispanic and Native American lifestyles of the area had been unchanged for more than three centuries. Coming from Canada, the Frank Bond family established the Espanola Mercantile, invested in sheep and land, and began the construction of an adobe home. By 1910, the house had grown to its current size, a testament to the power of the new cash economy.

The Bond House was added to the State Register of Historic Places in 1978, and on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. In 1982, the San Gabriel Historical Society opened the house as a museum with its first exhibits.

Visit the Bond House today and you will see beautiful examples of turn-of-the-century craftsmanship in the intricate woodwork, parquet floors, and brass fixtures. The San Gabriel Historical Society maintains a schedule of changing exhibits that features historical artifacts and photographs of daily life in the Española Valley. Other galleries serve up a sampling of art from local community groups.

From the front porch of the house, look to the east and enjoy spectacular views of the mountains. You will then understand why the Bonds chose this spot on which to build their home. You will also understand why this area now represents the heart and soul of the Española Valley.
