A town of the Keresan family situated on a rock mesa 357 feet high about 60 miles west of the Rio Grande, in Valencia County. Acoma was first visited by members of the Coronado party in 1540. The chronicler of the expedition described the place very much as it appears today. It is the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in the two Americas."
