Mabel Dodge Luhan House, NM
Mabel Ganson Evans Dodge Stern Luhan, an important patron of the arts, nurtured the famous artistic community that centered on her Taos home for 40 years. She arrived in town in 1917, and even before she completed her Pueblo Revival adobe house in 1922, artists and writers had come to visit and work in it. Among the many pilgrims were D. H. Lawrence, Mary Austin, Willa Cather, Robinson Jeffers, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Georgia O'Keeffe.
