Hacienda del Refugio

Leopoldo G. Oredain

At the end of the 19th century the hacienda de Cuisillos passed from Simón del Llano to one of his daughters, Josefa, and, on marriage, became the property of the Gortázar del Llano family, who split it into two, Cuisillos and San Juan de los Arcos.

Hacienda de San Juan de los Arcos

This hacienda was owned by Manuel Górtazar y Llano. It was the first to produce cartones during the Revolution. In the beginning these were for measures of maize, but later were for units of currency.
