Mansions, Motoring, and Millennials

Nov 18, 2017 to May 20, 2018

Huning's Highland neighborhood has been impacted by the local economy and reflects drastic citywide changes. Historic exhibit photos document those changes primarily along Central Avenue. Huning's Highland was the first neighborhood platted after the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad, a subsidiary of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, laid tracks to Albuquerque in 1880. Subdivision boundaries are the railroad tracks on the west, Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue on the north, the freeway 1-25 on the east, and Iron Avenue on the south. This exhibition will show the impact municipal development has on residential neighborhoods by focusing on the dramatic transformation that occurred in Franz Huning's Highland Addition neighborhood along Central Avenue from the late 19th century to present day.
