Clear Light Opera House

Cerrillos, NM ----- With an ancient history, Cerrillos more recently (in the 1800's) was rediscovered as a mining town. It had a boom period, almost became the capital of New Mexico, and built an opera house where the famed Sarah Bernhardt once performed. But as mining died out the town collapsed. It has more recently become a haven for artists but only has a few hundred residents. Charming place on the Turquoise Trail from Albuquerque to Santa Fe and worth a visit if you're going that way.
