(On the Camino Real)This site, named after the legendary women, Do?a Ana, is first mentioned as a paraje along the Camino Real. Spanish rested near here as they retreated from New Mexico following the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. The community was founded in 1843 as the Do?a Ana Bend Colony Grant. Today both the village and the historic Catholic Church, Nuestra Senora De Purificacion, are on the National Register of Historic Places.
