TV crews for PBS’s popular Legacy List show starring Matt Paxton were in Taos this week to film an episode of the beloved show that features historians, conservatives and other pundits sifting through the legacies of a family.

Now in its third season, the Daytime Emmy Award-nominated show has chosen to feature Taoseña Marcia Gonzales-Kimbrough as she prepares to sell her grandparents’ adobe house. This is the first time the series has been filmed in New Mexico.

Her grandfather worked as a shepherd and maintenance man in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project, and her grandmother made clothes on a loom. She hopes to find old letters, documents, farm equipment and personal items that tell her family’s story.

Gonzales-Kimbrough plans to keep the house and the surrounding alfalfa fields in the family. She plans to arrange it so that a relative can move into the house that has been vacant for years.

“It’s great to be a part of such a positive show and to have the opportunity to spotlight these amazing families,” series host Matt Paxton said in a statement.

“As we go through their heritage lists, we learn not only about their stories, but also about the history of our country. And since we all have items from family members that we love, we can all relate to them. their travels, ”he said.

Legacy List with Matt Paxton is produced by MY Entertainment and Shipyard Entertainment, in association with VPM Media Corporation, and distributed to public television channels across the United States by American Public Television.

Filming for season 3 began in October and will air from January 2022. For more information, visit mylegacylist.com.
