Taos, NM (Vocus/PRWEB) April 13, 2011
In the 1890's, when Dr. Thomas Paul (Doc) Martin came to Taos as the county's first and only physician, he bought what became the present day Historic Taos Inn for his home and practice. Doc was a rugged individualist, but was dearly loved for his deep concern for his fellow man. Covering the county to treat his patients meant hitching up a team of horses to travel for miles through mud and snow to set bones, break fevers and deliver babies.
When Doc passed, his wife Helen Martin converted the building into the Inn. Now known as “The Living Room of Taos,” the Taos Inn continues his legacy for warmth and care of all who come through this town.
Throughout May and June 2011 the Taos Inn will celebrate 75 years in business by showcasing exceptional regional entertainment, offering outstanding food, drink and accommodation specials to commemorate the significance of one of New Mexico’s most famous historic properties.
A party will take place on June 18th, featuring a complimentary concert by Grammy Award-winning Taos Pueblo flutist Robert Mirabal.
