The Fort restaurant

They hired William Lumpkins, the top architect in adobe construction from Santa Fe, and he hired a contractor from Taos, New Mexico. With the help of 22 men, we puddled over 80,000 mud and straw bricks, weighing 40 pounds each, to construct the main building.

When the costs of construction exceeded the budget, the bank suggested that we put a business in the historic “Fort” we had built as our home. Sam’l turned to Bay and said, “You can cook!” and then she said to Sam’l, “Well, you can cook!” They had Lumpkins redesign the lower level to be the restaurant and the upper level as our living quarters. All the furniture, gates, doors and chairs were hand carved by Taos artists in the same style as they were in 1833. For more information you can visit their website at
