We named our business "Chile Line Express" because it is located in Espanola, New Mexico, which became a city in 1880, when the famous Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad arrived. Soon after, the railroad was affectionately called the "Chile Line" and is still remembered by this name.
Surrounded by the Sangre de Cristo mountains on the East and Jemez Mountains on the West, Espanola, NM lies in the heart of northern New Mexico - approximately 20 north of Santa Fe and 45 miles south of Taos, NM. The Rio Grande River flows through this city of diverse cultures and rich history.
Our store is nestled in the beautiful Espanola Valley surrounded by high desert and mountainous country. We are continuously developing our shop from the historically rich influences of the city, as well as incorporating from new and evolving cultural changes.
