Free event at Casa San Ysidro

Under the Red Tin Roof encompasses several Zamora generations beginning in the early 1800’s and includes countless stories about individuals that have lived in the home. Events under this roof include: a successful mercantile business for over 40 years, surviving a fire, a flood, births, deaths, weddings, dances, heartbreaks, being a community hub, and so much more. Embedded in this memoir is culture, struggles with adverse weather, the presence of Apache and Navajo Indians which Juan Jose Archuleta encountered in route to Missouri, wildlife, crops, music, poems, dancing, religion, national forests and monuments, poverty, history repeating itself, and a people striving to succeed against all odds. In addition, it provides information on landmarks i.e.: The three Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monuments, The Oldest Apple Orchard in the United States, The Historic Red Tin Roof and Shaffer Hotel. The book also serves as a travel guide.
