La Cueva Raspberry Farm

A few miles east of Mora at La Cueva  is the La Cueva Raspberry Farm.  The farm had its origins in the early 1800's and by the 1860's, the Romero family had added a grist mill, a mercantile building, and the San Rafael Mission Church.  These buildings still stand and are the key elements of the La Cueva National Historic site.  During the mid-1800's, as many as 60 horse and ox drawn wagons were stationed at the farm and transported supplies to Fort Union and other outposts in the area.
