This video is clips from a lucky scout for interesting haciendas – well lots of them are interesting and very evocative of the history of México. We are putting together a series about central MX haciendas and were fortunate to meet Sr. Ignacio Muriel, whose family has owned and managed this property since 1840. Its in great shape, having survived the tumult of the revolution and the cuts of the land reform in 1930´s – through sheer determination, good relations with neighbors, workers, contractors; adept negotiation with the Villistas during the 1910 – 1920 revolution – the image 1 in this video is typical of the fate of other haciendas.
