The Noc-Ac de Peón hacienda emerged in the second decade of the 18th century, as a small ranchería that served to provide supplies and rest to travelers who passed by on their way to the capital or back to their town. They were the urban-productive and power centers like the European feudal castles of medieval times.
With the passage of time, due to its growth, it became a cattle ranch and vegetable production for self-consumption, as well as for the supply of the people who used the farm on their way to and from the coast.
At the end of the 19th century, due to the boom in the production of Henequén fiber, it was transformed to give way to new productive conditions, this activity being the one that detonated the greatest development and splendor of the Hacienda until the first stage of the 20th century.
With the fall of the Henequen industry due to the appearance of synthetic fibers, the Hacienda Noc-Ac was gradually abandoned, the Chapel being the only space that remained in use by the residents until the sale of the facilities for the current project.
STAGES OF CONSTRUCTION
Hacienda Noc-ac has 4 old buildings that date from different periods according to the use that was given to the property.
In the first instance, the House of the Butler and the owner's room were built, which later became the Pago de Raya building, which also served as a warehouse for both tools and supplies and at the back of this were the stables. After an arduous work of restoration and adjustments, four of our exclusive suites are currently located in it, preserving the atmosphere and splendor of the owners' rooms in colonial times.
Almost at the same time the main Noria was also built, which supplied water to the crops, in addition, it was used for human consumption and animals. The construction will house the gymnasium, spa and the two large surface tanks will be converted into pools.
The growth of the cattle activity between the middle and the end of the XIX century was so great that the construction of the Main House was made, where the heyday of that time was reflected in its spacious rooms and terraces. This building was restored and it currently houses the dining room and bar, as well as the hotel reception, public bathrooms, the kitchen and the current main pool, which was originally the water tank in the other Ferris wheel.
In this same building, the Chapel is located where the religious celebrations of the town were carried out; during the time of abandonment: it was the only space that continued to be used by the population until it was acquired for the current project. In it the original images and furniture of the time are preserved that give it a special enhancement, among them; the confessional, the priest's wardrobe, as well as a majestic Christ carved in wood from a cedar tree that was located in the front of the hacienda and that was collapsed by Hurricane Isidoro in 2002.
Later, and due to the rise of the henequen industry between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the construction of the Power House was made, where the process of shredding the henequen leaf took place, a site that has been preserved until the present as a vestige of that time.
