The Donabe restaurant and gallery is proudly located inside the historic home of Arthur Manby in downtown Taos, NM. The Manby hacienda boasts a staggering 19 rooms with 9 original fireplaces, and was originally built by Arthur Manby himself in 1907.
The home and gardens have been beautifully preserved by the Taos Center for the Arts (TCA). At the heart of serving the Taos community, the TCA offers avant-garde movies, locally produced plays, performances, and lecture series in its auditorium. The TCA's stables gallery on the property helped to launch the Taos modern arts movement in the 1950's, and once housed Manby's own horses.
Manby's death remains an unsolved mystery after he was discovered beheaded within its walls in 1929. (source)
