Scott Smith talked about the history of the Coronado State Monument and about conquistador and explorer Francisco Vásquez de Coronado. Coronado, with 300 soldiers and 800 Indian allies from New Spain, was looking for the fabled Seven Cities of Gold and instead found villages inhabited by prosperous native people from the area. This is New Mexico’s first state park. Although named after Coronado, it is also an archaelogical site featuring a pueblo settlement dating back to 1300.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Albuquerque, New Mexico to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
