A house says a lot about its owner, as evidenced by Galileo’s solar-system bedsheets and Lincoln’s vast collection of presidential action figures. Take a peek inside the home of a historic family with today’s Groupon for a year-long family membership to the Magoffin Home State Historic Site. Located less than one mile from the U.S.-Mexico border, the Magoffin Home provides curious adults and their inquisitive bairns with a glimpse into the past. Explore what life was like for the Magoffin family, who resided in this homestead for over 100 years and played many active roles in El Paso’s settlement and history. Come anytime Tuesday through Sunday for a guided tour around the elegant and historic adobe-style home, which comes complete with numerous artifacts, scenic grounds, and plot-driving Maltese Falcons.
- Built in 1875 for Joseph Magoffin, a pioneer leader who helped guide the city through its chaotic Wild West days, this is El Paso's only historic house museum open to the public. – Frommer's
- His interest in investigating haunted locations began when he was filming a straight historical documentary of the Magoffin Home, where he met up with a Metaphysical Church group that was touring the site with twenty-five psychics. He watched them interacting with the spirits inhabiting the house and was intrigued. – Chad Hoolihan, Examiner
