Both of them were recognized as exceptional artists and their work was in demand. Thomas Benrimos paintings are often on display in the Harwood Museum in Taos. Dorothy came out to New Mexico with Georgia OKeefe and Rebecca Salisbury James at the invitation of Mabel Dodge Luhan in 1935. None of them liked staying with Mabel and Tony. Dorothy bought this house in 1939 and moved to it, Georgia at that time moved to the Sagebrush Inn temporarily before establishing herself in Abiquiu. Becky bought a house at the end of Bent Street.Casa Feliz, which is still there today. Becky, her husband and father owned Buffalo Bills Wild West Show and Buffalo Bill often was seen at her house playing checkers with many Taos characters.

This house saw a variety of eccentric characters and artists pass through its doors. The present owner purchased the house in 1976, shortly after Dorothys death. She was the first person to see the house and purchased it at first site. It was exactly what she had dreamed of in Taos. The secluded, quiet location appealed to her and the fact that you could be in town in 5 minutes on the back roads---never having to use the hiway. She and her former husband have renovated many historic properties in the Taos area. She has been exceptionally happy here for the last 43 years.
