Inscription. Historic Los Luceros includes a Pueblo Indian ruin and an 18th century rancho/hacienda on Sebastian Martia Serrano's 1703 land grant. Evolving out of family inheritance, local artistry and preservation efforts, the complex contains five adobe structures, including Casa Grande, a fine example of 19th century territorial architecture, which has served as Rio Arriba's County Courthouse (1846-1854).
