Kit Carson was a trapper and a mountain man of great renown. He served as an army guide, an Indian Agent and was a highly celebrated Army officer during the Indian Wars.

The interior consists of nine rooms, seven of them original, which surround an open patio with a traditional Mexican mud oven and a well.
