This year, the New Mexico Magazine’s annual home and garden issue focused in on four historic Las Cruces properties and their owners’ efforts to preserve their unique legacies.
New Mexico’s second-largest city is home to elegant architectural gems steeped in lore and preserved by their stewards’ devotion.
- Casa Camino Real
A 1850s adobe owned by former New Mexico Supreme Court Justice Daniel Sosa Jr.
- Reynolds-Chavez-Fountain Home
A two-story Territorial adobe built in the 1860s
- Lalo Natividad House
This early 1900s structure includes an interior grotto
- The Frenger-Scholthauer House
A complex that was first constructed as a classic Victorian home in 1887
