NMGS Visits Las Vegas, New Mexico

A building is a terrible thing to waste.

On September 20th, the New Mexico Genealogical Society visited the Committee for Historical Preservation in Las Vegas, New Mexico. This organization helps preserve historic buildings in the area and collects local history and genealogy.

Pat Patrick gave a talk about Las Vegas' history. He is a volunteer for the CCHP. Twenty-two people attended his presentation. Audience members were from both Albuquerque and Las Vegas.

Afterwards, Pat gave us a tour of old town in which he told us about history of many of the buildings on the plaza.
