Alvarado Hotel

For well over a half century a traveler’s first impression of the American Southwest was through one of the many Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad stations and the associated hotel and restaurant operated by the Fred Harvey organization.

The Alvarado Hotel opened on May 11, 1902. Local businessmen and civic leaders expected that the building of the hotel “would attract the wealthier classes to stop in Albuquerque on their travels to the West.”

On January 2, 1970, the Alvarado Hotel closed its doors. On February 2, 1970 the wrecking crews began the removal of doors and windows as the first step toward final demolition. A small but valiant group of citizens staged a last ditch fight to save the Alvarado Hotel, but as too often happens, it was too late and too little supported.

There is a lot to see in this museum! The volunteer staff was so nice and friendly, our 5-year-old son really loved it. Be sure to bring dog treats for the friendly resident dog, Gus!
