New Mexico State Fairgrounds Buildings – Albuquerque NM

Description

The New Mexico State Fairgrounds opened at its current location in 1937. In addition to buildings, we should look to New Deal programs for basic infrastructure such as exterior walls, gates and landscaping.

"Wilfred Stedham designed the grandstand, paddock, track and clubhouses as a part of this New Deal Project."

    Who designed the tower at the Central Avenue gate of the New Mexico Fairgrounds? Its classic Spanish Pueblo Revival Style reminds me of John Gaw Meem’s work.
