Built in the 1850s, the Nusbaum House was located on the corner of Washington Ave. and Nusbaum St.  It was torn down in 1960 to make room for a City Hall parking lot. The Hotel de Chimayo is currently on the site. The demolition was a result of the deliberate "adobification" of Santa Fe and led to the founding of The Historic Santa Fe Foundation, which has been successful in saving many other 19th century buildings.
