Santa Rosa New Mexico

The city of Aqua Negra Chiquita, which stands for “Little Black Water”, was established in 1865 in New Mexico. In 1890 the city was renamed to Santa Rosa, which stands for Saint Rose.

In January 2018, after leaving Albuquerque, I had the opportunity to spend some time in that city.

The family owned Route 66 Automobile Museum in Santa Rosa has some very unique modified vehicles, including one with a “bulldozer” attachment.

Legends of America has more information regarding the history of Santa Rosa, New Mexico.
