Day 8 of the PapiBlogger Family Road Trip featured a visit to the nation’s oldest house and church and then onto a major drive to the world’s most famous crater on our way to the day’s final destination, the Grand Canyon.
OLDEST HOUSE AND CHURCH IN U.S. DISAPPOINTING
We bid farewell to Santa Fe with a lightning quick visit to the oldest house and church in the United States, both of which are literally right across from each other and both of which are barely worth more than a photo op to brag you were there. You can’t go inside or even peek through the window of “oldest house” (built in 1646) and as for the oldest church (built 1610) it is covered with scaffolds and construction right now. The kids liked knowing they had visited both buildings because they are the “oldest” things in their categories but you could easily skip them.
