In 1819, the Village of Tijeras was established. We have grown to have several businesses, senior citizen center, Vietnam veteran memorial, and much more. The Village is situated on historic Route 66 and State Highway 14. The word Tijeras is Spanish for scissors, as it is the meeting place of the Manzano and and Sandia mountain ranges.
