Architecture Walk is Scheduled

On Saturday, October 20, Nob Hill Neighborhood Association and reDiscover Nob Hill will offer their 10th Annual Architecture Walk.

On Saturday, October 20, your neighborhood association and reDiscover Nob Hill will offer their 10th Annual Architecture Walk. We will explore the genesis of Nob Hill as Albuquerque grew above the sand hills and onto the east mesa in the early 20th century. Owing to a fortunate chain of events most of that early architecture survives, making Nob Hill one of the best preserved early automobile-oriented suburbs in the country.

This walk will offer a rare sampler of four of Nob Hill’s six residential subdivisions along with a spicy serving of the commercial district surrounding the 1947 Nob Hill Shopping Center.

You’ll learn to read historic houses, how to research your own house and how you can perform maintenance or remodeling in a way that preserves Nob Hill’s distinctive historic character and its unique sense of place.

We will meet at 1 pm in front of the 1931 Mediterranean house at 314 Hermosa Dr NE, proceed north through 1926 College View and Monte Vista, walk through 1916 University Heights and 1925 Granada Heights, then back to 314 Hermosa Dr. for a social time.

If you have a house in the area that retains much of its historic character and would like to provide your yard for a reception at the end a future walk please let us know. If you have information or questions about your house we are always interested in hearing from you.

We limit sign ups so all can hear. Make reservations at email or call 991-1388.
