Who We Are

Our group formed in 2018 with folks who held fond memories of their education at St. Anthony's and who wanted to preserve the  historic school to showcase our pride  in the community.  Peñasco Valley Historial Preservation Society was officially formed as a 5013C non-profit once when were able to acquire the property and get the work of restoration going.
