TAOS, N.M. (AP) - The Historic Taos Inn in New Mexico is up for sale.

The Albuquerque Journal reports the 44-room hotel, bar and restaurant that spans two acres and is comprised of several 19th century adobe buildings is on the market for $7.1 million.

The current ownership group has had the hotel for 30 years.

The Taos Inn was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

It opened in 1936 as the Hotel Martin - named after Dr. Thomas Paul “Doc” and Helen Martin, who came to Taos in the 1890s.



The doctor had his practice in what is now the restaurant and couple purchased the surrounding buildings.

When her husband died, Helen Martin enclosed a plaza in the center of the properties and turned it into a hotel.
