Downtown Albuquerque Walking Tours

The Albuquerque Historical Society has worked with Historic Albuquerque Inc. (HAI) to develop a walking tour of downtown Central Ave and train volunteers to provide free tours. The two key HAI volunteers are Diane Schaller and Dick Ruddy. Diane has researched the histories of many downtown businesses. Dick has done much research and collected photographs of various historic buildings, many of which were demolished.

The free walking tours of downtown Central Avenue meet at the corner of 1st & Central in front of the movie theater. No reservation is required. Tours may be canceled if temperatures are below 40°F, icy conditions exist, there is inclement weather (rain, snow) or hazardous, weather-related driving conditions.
