A Walk Around the Alameda-Depot Historic District: Part 1

Here is a whole neighborhood that is on the National Register of Historical Places, and it's right here in Las Cruces. I took a walk with Auntie Bucksnort on a sunny afternoon a week ago, and would like to share the photos with you.

The houses in the neighborhood were built between 1875 and 1949, and are in Mission/Spanish Revival, Late Victorian, Late 19th And 20th Century Revivals; all gathered around or near Pioneer Women's Park and the historic Santa Fe Railroad Depot, which now houses the Las Cruces Railroad Museum.

Peaceful streets

Sidewalks built by the Works Progress Administration

The gardens are as wonderful as the houses...

... and so are the trees
