Inscription. The Spanish community of Taos developed two miles southwest of Taos Pueblo. It later served as a supply base for the “Mountain Men,” and was the home of Kit Carson who is buried here. Governor Charles Bent was killed here in the anti-U.S. insurrection of 1847. In the early 1900’s, Taos developed as a colony for artists and writers.
