If you want to stop by, check out the Oldest House in Santa Fe. The outside is very nice and the inside is very very small with just couple of rooms left. The folks back in the day had to adjust to the living conditions...More

It was ok - you don’t have to pay to see it. There isn’t much to it - it’s mostly a gift shop. The only thing left of the original building is two rooms.

Oldest house with history of reconstruction one. Two rooms with some artifacts that have not understandable relation to house. Could be organized better, but it FREE and you will not lose anything by looking.

Redmond: I visited on a Monday, after touring the church. Don't expect this to be a mansion refurbished; it is a pioneer "hut" that has been preserved, but not restored. Keep in mind that houses then had only two rooms. The... More

Unfortunately I was there on a Monday and I do not remember seeing any sign with their hours. They have a gift shop so my guess is that they are open all the time. You may want to try calling them or look them up online.
