Renamed after the popular game show, Truth or Consequences is known as one of the “Coolest Small Towns” in the United States. With fewer than 6,500 people—it rivals big cities when it comes to a strong sense of community, good food, and a rich culture, including its unique and diverse architecture.
T or C will be the New Mexico Architectural Foundation’s 27th tour – an annual event that is renowned for featuring our state’s most enchanting built treasures and the people who construct and preserve them.
