The Loretto Chapel

This holy site is a Roman Catholic parish containing a miraculous staircase attributed to the intercession of St. Joseph. The story of the miraculous staircase: When the Loretto Chapel was completed in 1878, there was no way to access the choir loft twenty-two feet above. Carpenters were called in to address the problem, but they all concluded access to the loft would have to be via ladder as a staircase would interfere with the interior space of the small Chapel. Legend says that to find a solution to the seating problem, the Sisters of the Chapel made a novena to St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters. On the ninth and final day of prayer, a man appeared at the Chapel with a donkey and a toolbox looking for work. Months later, the elegant circular staircase was completed, and the carpenter disappeared without pay or thanks. After searching for the man (an ad even ran in the local newspaper) and finding no trace of him, some concluded that he was St. Joseph himself, having come in answer to the sisters' prayers. The stairway's carpenter, whoever he was, built a magnificent structure. The design was innovative for the time and some of the design considerations still perplex experts today. The staircase has two 360 degree turns and no visible means of support. Also, it is said that the staircase was built without nails—only wooden pegs. Questions also surround the number of stair risers relative to the height of the choir loft and about the types of wood and other materials used in the stairway's construction. Over the years many have flocked to the Loretto Chapel to see the Miraculous Staircase. The staircase has been the subject of many articles, TV specials, and movies including "Unsolved Mysteries" and the television movie titled "The Staircase.

In 2003, the Museum celebrated 50 years» of documenting, collecting, preserving and interpreting the creative works of traditional artists from cultures around the world.

Spruce Lodge

outdoorsmen will be right at home

Spruce Lodge sits on the banks of the Chama River, encircled by the gorgeous woodlands of the valley.  Scott Cole purchased the lodge in the year 2000, giving the 1950’s cabins a complete overhaul.  Now the place has all the rustic charm it started with, but with an updated edge. The facilities are perfect for family reunions, vacations, or a solo weekend getaway.  Guests can enjoy a seat beside the outdoor fire pit and watch the river go by.  A scenic path runs along the back of the lodge.  Each of the twelve cabins has a covered porch and a cozy feel.  Each comes with access to a barbeque grill and most have a full kitchen. Spruce Lodge is nestled along the highway into Chama.  Everything one would need is within a mile of the lodge, including restaurants, shops, and a grocery store. Outdoorsmen will be right at home with the hiking, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, mountain biking, and rafting in the area.  Best of all, it's just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Cumbres and Toltec narrow-gauge scenic railroad.
