The Downtown Neighborhoods Association (DNA) is holding its biennial Mother’s Day Historic Home Tour, Sunday May 13th, 2018, 11:00am – 3:00pm. The Downtown Neighborhoods (west of downtown between Central and Mountain Rd) is comprised of several distinct neighborhoods. This year’s tour will feature homes in the 4th Ward Historic District and the 8th and Forrester Historic District. The Historic Overlay Zones were designated by the city to protect areas of historical, architectural or cultural significance. Many of the houses in these neighborhoods are also, on the Register of National and State Historical Places. The Downtown Neighborhoods feature houses that reflect the diverse materials and architectural styles that sprang up as Albuquerque expanded from Old Town to New Town with the railroad and all of its influences.

Come spend the day with us, tour some of the oldest, most exciting and beautiful houses in Albuquerque. The money we raise will support a variety of community projects and events such as the Harwood Arts Center, Lew Wallace Elementary School programs, The Downtown Grower’s Market, neighborhood beautification and a tree reforestation project.

DNA and ABQ Trolley (The Albuquerque Tourism and Sight Seeing Factory) will offer complimentary trolley stops at designated points along the tour route, but not at individual homes. The students at Lew Wallace Elementary will be presenting portraits of our historic homes, with an Art exhibit to showcase their work in homes along the tour and at Lew Wallace Elementary School.
