We will restore the St. Anthony school building to honor our history, preserve our legacy, and embrace the future. Restoring and preserving the historic building will create a community plaza that unites and serves the Peñasco area through its history, culture and traditions, and will empower the community. The Peñasco Valley Heritage Plaza will focus on cultural preservation, economic development, and community engagement.
