Description

On July 15th, 1961 an old-west themed amusement park opened along Route 66 east of Albuquerque at the mouth of Tijeras canyon. It only survived for 3 years.   Albuquerque Historical Society Member Roland Penttila will explain in words and pictures how it came to be, what it looked like and why it may have failed.  Find out more about Roland at http://albuqhistsoc.org.

On Sundays, knowledgeable guides and members of our community lead explorations and offer demonstrations in assortment of fields and specialties. Check back for more events in the Summer Series!
