Winter Activities

The history of Artesia is rich and filled with wonderful stories of people and industries that have, despite the odds, triumphed.   The pages of Artesia’s past have come to life, and are on permanent display with the numerous monuments on Main Street.   The importance of each monument is explained in great detail by the statues themselves and the accompanying plaques.  Taking a walk down Main Street is an easy and fun way to learn more about the place you live and a wonderful connection is fostered when you learn of the sacrifices and successes made by the settlers of Artesia.  Artesia MainStreet offers a Walking Guide that explain each statue, as well as a Kid’s Walking Guide that explains the statues in a way they understand.  Please contact Artesia MainStreet if you are interested in learning more about these walking guides. Read More »
