The Presidio Museum comes alive allowing visitors to get a feel for life in the Presidio during the late 18th-century New Spain Period and the 19th-century Territorial Period.

The theme this month focuses on the trades, skills, arts, and crafts that came from life on the frontier Men commonly earned a living by joining the military, working in the church, blacksmithing, or providing the necessary services the Presidio would have needed. Women tended to the home and cared for their families. One art that will be demonstrated is Colcha embroidery, which emerged from the southwest during the Spanish Colonial period. Visitors will also have the opportunity to participate in a Presidio-wide scavenger hunt!
