Location of Taos, New Mexico

Taos is a city located in Taos County, New Mexico. In New Mexico a municipality may call itself a village, town, or city. (See New Mexico local government)

Taos calls itself the "Town of Taos" and was incorporated as such in 1934. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 4,700. It is a large town in north-central New Mexico located near Taos Pueblo, the Native American village and tribe from which it takes its name. It is the county seat of Taos County.

The word 'Taos' means 'red willow' in the Tewa language. Many people in Taos claim to have experienced what is termed the Taos Hum. It is believed that this ultra low frequency originates from a covert hidden government research laboratory, whose existence has neither been proven or disproved. Other scientists ascribe this phenomenon to naturally-occurring geological events. The lore of this phenomenon has become part of the appeal of this unique community.

Taos was established following the Spanish conquest of the Pueblo villages.

During the 1770s Taos was repeatedly raided by Comanches who at that time lived in the plains of what is now eastern Colorado. Juan Bautista de Anza, governor of the Province of New Mexico, led a successful punitive expedition in 1779 against the Comanches.

Beginning in 1898 artists began to settle in Taos. In time an art colony developed. Many paintings were made of local scenes, especially of Taos Pueblo and activities there. Many of the artists used Native Americans from the pueblo as models in often fanciful paintings. Some of the artists' studios have been preserved and may be viewed by visitors to Taos. For more information see Taos art colony.

Another tourist attraction is the home of Kit Carson. Julia Roberts married in Taos in July 2002.
