In 1962, Helen Greene Blumenschein gave the family’s home and furnishings as a gift to the community of Taos and the Kit Carson Historic Museums (now the Taos Historic Museums). The museum celebrates the lives and art of Ernest L. Blumenschein , Mary Shepard Greene Blumenschein, and their daughter Helen. It also commemorates the formation of the Taos Society of Artists and the establishing of Taos as a world-renowned art colony. Recognized for its significance, the Blumenschein Home was registered as a National Historic Landmark in 1966.
