Abiquiu Home and Studio Tours
Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) bought her house in Abiquiu in 1945, which is now owned by the Museum.The 5,000-square-foot Spanish Colonial-era Abiquiu compound was in ruins in 1945, and for the next four years, O’Keeffe supervised its restoration, which was carried out by her friend, Maria Chabot. She moved from New York to make New Mexico her permanent home in 1949, and lived either at the Abiquiu or Ghost Ranch houses until 1984, when she moved to Santa Fe.
