TAOS, N.M. (AP) — A nor[auth] thern New Mexico ranch once home to famed English author D.H. Lawrence has reopened to the public.

The Taos Community Foundation and the University of New Mexico say the ranch about 20 miles north of Taos is open every Monday, Thursday and Saturday through October from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The 160-acre ranch is owned by the university but hasn’t been regularly accessible to the public for several years.

An agreement between the foundation, UNM and the D.H. Lawrence Ranch Alliance cleared the way for public visits to the ranch where Lawrence lived part-time during the early 1920s.

The ranch features Lawrence’s memorial, two cabins and a home that was built by Frieda Lawrence after her husband’s death.
