About this title


In 1849, James Hervy Simpson, a lieutenant and engineer in the Army Corps of Topographical Engineers, was ordered to survey a wagon road as a southern alternative to the Santa Fe Trail from Fort Smith, Arkansas, to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Simpson hired two brothers, Edward "Ned" and Richard Kern, to provide survey sketches that included the pueblo ruins of Giusewa and natural hot springs of Ojo Caliente, which are known today as Jemez Springs. Prior to incorporation in 1955, Jemez Springs, like many frontier towns, was supported by ranching, logging, and mining. It also had an influx of tourists who enjoyed the hot springs or one of the many dude ranches in the area. In 1995, Jemez Springs won an award as an All-America City from the National Civic League, and with a mere 375 residents at the time, it was one of the smallest communities to earn the honor.

About the Author:

As journalists, photographers, and authors, Kathleen Wiegner and her husband, Robert Borden, have been publishing the local newspaper, the Jemez Thunder, for 13 years. With local history an important focus of the newspaper, Wiegner and Borden have collected numerous vintage photographs--many of which are showcased here--and have worked diligently to preserve the history of Jemez Springs for future generations.
