Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was an important American modernist who painted the stunning architectural and landscape configurations of northern New Mexico for more than 40 years, beginning in 1929.  She bought a house in the area at Ghost Ranch in 1940, and another in Abiquiu in 1945, both of which are now owned by the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.  

The 5,000-square-foot Spanish Colonial-era Abiquiu compound was in ruins in 1945, and for the next four years, O’Keeffe supervised its restoration, which was carried out by her friend, Maria Chabot.  She moved from New York to make New Mexico her permanent home in 1949, and lived either at the Abiquiu or Ghost Ranch houses until 1984, when she moved to Santa Fe because of ill health.

Although the Ghost Ranch house is not open to the public, tours of the Abiquiu house are available on a limited basis and by appointment.
