See where the Taos Society of Artists began: Couse-Sharp Historic Site
The 2+ acre campus in the heart of Taos’ central historic district features the former homes and studios of E. I. Couse and J. H. Sharp, two of the American-born, European-trained artists who formed the TSA in 1915. Visitors are astonished that such a well-preserved—and charming—complex of period buildings, gardens, furnishings, and associated art collections still exists. We invite you to peruse our website to get a feel for the amazing range of history, culture, architecture, science, and art at the Couse-Sharp Historic Site.
Access to the site is by docent-led tour only and we are currently accepting tour appointment requests. Find out all the details on our Tours page.
We are fully complying with public health guidelines. As of August 20, 2021, everyone must wear masks on the property and preserve distance from docents, staff and unrelated parties. We continue to monitor regulations and official guidance and will amend our protocols as warranted. Click here to see the full protocol. Thank you for your cooperation in New Mexico's public health efforts.
