Photo Gallery Two: Historic Buildings


Kimo Theater

Located at 5th and Central in Downtown, the Kimo Theater is known for its unusual style of architecture. It is a mixture of Art Deco and Southwestern Puebl0 styles. It was opened in 1927 by Italian immigrants but is now owned by the city of Albuquerque. It features live concerts, movies, comedy acts and plays.



Armijo House

One of the oldest houses in Old Town. It is now a restaurant with merchants selling turquoise and silver jewelry and American Indian pottery on the front portal.


La Posada de Albuquerque - Second and Copper, Downtown

One of the first hotels built by New Mexico native Conrad Hilton. It opened in 1939 and is the National Register of Historic Places. It is known for its Southwestern style decorated lobby and rooms. It is also the home of the Jane Butel School of Southwestern Cooking.


California and Linn streets, NE

This plain-looking building near the Expo New Mexico fairgrounds is where software giant Microsoft was founded around 1975. Microsoft spent it's early years in Albuquerque before relocating to the Seattle area. Paul Allen's corporation purchased this property a few years ago and there are plans to commemorate it with a plaque.


El Vado Motel

This motel boasts itself as "The purest surviving Route 66 motel in Albuquerque". It has been operating since 1937. Central avenue is full of these old pueblo style motels from the golden age of Route 66. El Vado is one of the better preserved and famous ones. It is located near the Albuquerque Aquarium.


Southwest Brewing Company

I don't know much about this building. It says it was built in 1899 and was a brewery and ice company. The other side of the building advertises Glorieta beer. It is located in the Warehouse district near downtown.

I tend not to create a lot of comments, but i did a
few searching and wound up here "Photo Gallery Two: Historic Buildings".
And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Is it only me or does it look like some of these comments appear like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have
to post. Could you list of the complete urls of
all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page
or linkedin profile?
