The Nusbaum House - A Victim Of Santa Fe Style

Contributed by

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.

Words on a sign on the wall of the building: 

“The Ciderpress was an antique store for many years but is now a private residence.  The brick section was built by the Cartwright family and was the first garage built in Santa Fe.  The adobe section was built in the early 1940s by Juanito Lujan, a Taos Indian, for his own use.  He was the gardener and good friend of Emmy Caldwell, whose family still owns it.  The property extends to De Vargas St.  The location of the western portion of the Roque Tuedesqui house, built in 1840, 99 years old when bought by Mr. Cadlwell!”
