Heirs and homeowners currently are locked in a dispute after a land grant board filed a warranty deed in an attempt to reclaim 20,000 acres of private land originally granted by Spain's colonial government to Arroyo Hondo's founding families. The fight is preventing homeowners from selling property, refinancing mortgages, or getting insurance policies while the courts struggle to unravel the conflict. (AP Photo/Russell Contreras)
