Just a short drive into Albuq's South Valley, on the historic Camino Real (Isleta Blvd), is a beautifully restored 1800's adobe hacienda that served as home to the Gutierrez-Hubbell family as well as stage coach stop, trading post and post office. Your visit will allow you to learn about the fascinating history of NM during that period, life of an influential family, told through well designed signage and artifacts. You'll also learn about the incredible community effort that helped save the house and the restoration effort to bring it back to its former grandeur. Save time to wander along the walking paths that surround the 10 acre property under the cottonwoods along the acquit, visit the small demo and heritage gardens and the acres of organic crops tended to by a farmer collaborative. The house is listed on state list of cultural properties. Check out website: gutierrezhubbellhouse.org

The historic Gutiérrez-Hubbell House dates back to the 1860’s and was once a private residence, mercantile, trading post, stagecoach stop and post office situated along the old Spanish trade route called El Camino Real. Today it is a museum and cultural center with a mission to document, research and preserve history, maintain open spaces, protect wildlife habitat and teach the agricultural heritage of the area. The artifacts contained in the house reflect the life of the family of Juliana Gutierrez, who was descended from some of the oldest and wealthiest families of New Mexico, and James Hubbell, who came from Connecticut soon after New Mexico was annexed by the US. A tour of the house includes an interesting discussion of the genealogy of the Gutierrez family, and of the cultural fusion that makes the state such a unique place today. I only wish that I had visited the area when one of the programs the center offers was being presented. This is definitely a site I will revisit when I am in Albuquerque again.

We have visited several times, mostly during events, and have been very impressed with all the work that has been done during the restoration of the house and grounds. The museum tells the story of the family and the property quite vividly and the various artifacts displayed enhance the history. One can spend as little or as much time there as one wants, reading all the informative explanations and walking the beautiful grounds. We very lucky to have such a place here in Albuquerque and the South Valley.

First, we've seen lots of castles and mansions...but this was very different because of the Southwest style: single story, spread out. And the story of the people and culture there evoked a European feudal manor. Our docent asked how long we could spend, and when we said "all day" he was delighted to give us lots of history of the home and those who lived there. Turned out the home was in his family generations ago. He shared about how the wealthy landowners and those who worked for them had a symbiotic relationship, and about marriages through the years impacted the family.. Great stories! And FREE (donations for foundation accepted)

My wife and I had the extreme pleasure of attending the annual Agricultural Land Trust dinner at the Hubbell House. Food was provided by high end local restaurants-who sourced local providers of all ingredients. While the building and contents are charming, it was the grounds (including garden) that made the event so unique. The setting in the south valley, and relationship to the Rio Grande corridor make this a very special place. Highly recommended to all who are interested in the history of the central Rio Grande and who want to explore the area's roots.

We attended a family wedding late July. HOT and balmy and had to park in a field a bit away from the wedding site. The staff did a great job and it all went well. The caterers had fabulous services and were prompt as planned. Only issue was cleanup which fell on the family - not sure if the site offers that even for a fee?

The restoration of the house itself is amazing, and the displays are very interesting. Just know that there is a very limited number of articles/furniture displayed. The main artifact is the house itself.

The house and grounds are quite interesting. But even more interesting I thought was all the history described in the interpretative displays, not just of the families, but also of their society and the development of the region. Anyone visiting Albuquerque with an interest in local history should make this a stop.

Imagine a woman in the 1700’s owning 40 square miles of land from the Rio Grande to the Rio Puerco, 13 miles to the West! Way before women were normally allowed to be landowners! What force of character, what foresight… We had Bruce (long white-bearded Santa-like) as a docent. He was very informative and still had the willingness to learn more about the history of the area…

From 1600 to 1850, follow the history of three generations of the same family. Farmers, realtors, general store owners, they were well-rounded and did a bit of everything. They made money thanks to merino wool, wine from over 3,300 grapevines, over 30 varieties of apples, and much more.

Go as slow or as fast as you want, no one puts pressure on the way you ‘should’ visit this place. We were here in the winter and it was too cold to visit the grounds, we will return when the weather warms up.

Donation based visit – worth your while
