Dance Hall, Petaca, New Mexico

Dance Hall (formerly), in Petaca, New Mexico. It is now part of a residence of a sweet lady I met who has a long history here. She also had plenty of time to share that history with me on her way out to put gas in her pickup truck. As you can imagine there’s a lot of history that this 83 year old woman could share. In brief she told me, her family lived close by and that she was grateful for that.  Thanks for looking. G

  1. I believe that my Grandfather Jose Jaramillo built the Dance Hall. He also had a little store for the community right next door to the Dance Hall. My father told me that my Grandfather was also a square dancer caller for the dances held. My Grandmother Bersavia Jaramillo was a very good cook. Thanks, Alberta Jaramillo

    • Thank you so much for sharing your connection to the place, Alberta. The lady I met lived next door to the dance hall. I really enjoy the little community and the people are so friendly and welcoming. Thank you again. G
