Seton Village is located in the high desert of New Mexico near the Jemez Mountains. The village has a rich history. It is a designated National Historic Landmark and a New Mexico State Cultural Property.
This village is known as the community that grew around the 32-room “castle” built by Ernest Thompson Seton, who was an educator and founder of the Boy Scouts of America. The castle became a community camp where he taught printing press and shared his interests in wildlife conservation and Native people.
After the acquisition of the Academy for the Love of Learning, Seton Village Castle was restored to its former glory and has been turned into a tourist attraction. As of 2004, the Academy was able to archive Seton’s books, including those which were written by him.
There are several landmarks and museums surrounding the area of Seton Village. One is the Loretto Chapel which is known for its “Miraculous Stair” (unusual helix-shaped spiral staircase). Another famous landmark is the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. This was built using yellow limestone blocks and features a stained glass replica featuring the dove of the Holy Spirit.
Landscape gardening is the cultivation and maintenance of plants, trees, and other forms of vegetation. It can also be described as the art or science of designing landscapes and garden spaces within an area with natural or man-made boundaries.
