In the early 1930s, the Carrion Adobe caught the eye of renowned watercolor artist Milford Zornes, who captured its essence in his painting titled ''Old Adobe.'' This piece garnered acclaim when displayed in an exhibit in Washington, D.C., capturing the attention of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, who selected it for the prestigious White House collection.
