Talk of the Town: A History of Albuquerque

ID : 82225   
« back to classes page
What can you say about Albuquerque?  It’s big and it’s beautiful.  It’s Old and it’s New.  Its history extends from the Indian villages of the Tiguex Province—to the old Spanish villa down by the river—to the new American wild west boomtown up by the railroad.  But, despite its humble (and illegal) beginnings, the Land of Enchantment’s largest city has lived up to a prediction made by its founder, Francisco Cuervo y Valdez, about New Mexico—that his tiny villa would one day become its most prosperous.  It’s more than a journey through three centuries, it’s the story of one of the great cities of the Southwest.
