HACIENDA (O. Span, facienda, from the Latin, meaning " things to be done "), a Spanish term for a landed estate. It is commonly applied in Spanish America to a country estate, on which stock-raising, manufacturing or mining may be cairied on, usually with a dwelling-house for the owner's residence upon it. It is thus used loosely for a country house.
