A Historic Perspective of DowntownFarmington, New Mexico, the heart of the Four Corners, boasts a thriving downtown, where character, history and culture fuse in a mixture of places and events. Originally the land in what is now Northwest New Mexico was known as T?ta' in Navajo, with T? meaning "water" and ta' meaning "three," essentially, "waters, three." In 1876, this section of the Jicarilla Apache Reservation was opened for settlement by the U.S. government and allowed for the establishment of Farmington. In December 2002, the Farmington Historic Commercial District was officially entered into the National Register for Historic Places. With our colorful history, natural beauty and sense of purpose, Farmington is working to regain its downtown heritage and pride of place.
