The Story of Atrisco

A story over 400 years in the making is a story of hardworking, tenacious, yet hopeful people. The first immigrants to what is known today as the United States. A people who viewed their lives and their opportunities as coming from the land they worked; lands that provided shelter and sustenance; and finally in the land that represented hope for their children and their community. A small group of colonists who organized and created a beginning in the late 1500’s that has evolved today, some 400 years later, into a success story for the ages. Today, still organized and operating, the people of the Atrisco Land Grant pursue this generation’s hopes through the Atrisco Companies.
