Join the Los Alamos Historical Society and the Los Alamos Creative District for History on Tap online on Monday, June 28, at 5:30 p.m. Share stories and ask questions of a panel of local experts about the unique history of our stables.

History on Tap is free, and you can register to attend via Zoom here: www.losalamoshistory.org/events.

The North Mesa Horse Stables today consist of 122 lots—but what are the origins of our stables, and how have they grown over time? Join a lively roundtable discussion with longtime horse owners and other local experts as we share stories illustrating the history of our stables. Bring your own memories and questions about this special part of Los Alamos history!

The historic Lujan Cabin (1916) is the reason the founders of the stables located operations there just after World War II. History on Tap will include a discussion of this homesteading cabin and its promising future for community and environmental stewardship as the remarkable story of our stables continues.

History on Tap is part of the On Tap series presented by the Los Alamos Creative District. Each evening begins with a short, informal presentation followed by a lively group discussion. Learn more at https://www.creativelosalamos.com.
