With a generous grant from the Eugene V. and Clare Thaw Charitable Trust. Nuevo Mexico profundo and Cornerstones are collaborating in the restoration of San Agustin, an historic church located in the Gallinas River Valley near Las Vegas, NM.

From I-25 exit 343 in Las Vegas, head south on the frontage road that begins near García’s Tires, on the east side of the highway. The sign at the turn indicates Mineral Hill and San Gerónimo, but you will continue straight—southbound—on the frontage road after the turnoff to these locations. Just after mile marker 1 on the frontage road turn left onto Route C24, which is an indistinct, unsigned gray gravel road that runs momentarily parallel to the railroad tracks and then crosses them. Continue on this road for about 20 minutes, descending into the valley and eventually to the village.
