Historic homes tour in Albuquerque–May 8, 2011

A tour of historic Albuquerque homes and gardens on Mother’s Day–what more could one want? I just received this a few days ago. And while the Edward Buxton Cristy House at 201 Walter Street SE isn’t on the tour, you can walk by it and see this charming house. He was the architect who designed the Bottger Mansion of Old Town.
