Martineztown, 1823-1950; Hispanics, Italians, Jesuits & land investors in New Town Albuquerque.

Sanchez, Joseph P.

Rio Grande Books


220 pages




This study describes the origins of the community of Martineztown in the early 19th century, its evolution, and its significance in the history and heritage of Albuquerque. Largely overshadowed by the history and the valley's large land grants, Martineztown was, between roughly 1850 and 1950, thought of as an attractive place to invest. The book concentrates not on the community's cultural diversity as much as on land tenure patterns occurring during that 100-year period. Authors are Sanchez, superintendent of the Petroglyph National Monument and Spanish Colonial Research Center at the University of New Mexico, and Miller, a research historian at the center.
