VIEW AS GALLERY

6 Reset Actual Size
Built in 1881, the building was a general merchandise store with a saloon annex, which still operates. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. Several fires have ravaged Lamy, but the adobe structure survived and is the oldest extant building in Lamy.

Model exhibit shows the AT&SF trains as they stopped at Lamy with celebrities and ordinary travelers in the middle of the 20th century (circa 1940). The museum building (some red paint on its front) is seen directly over the larger building (Harvy House)next to the depot. The church is seen in the far distance. This train would be headed east toward Chicago.

Second model traveling west (toward Riverside, CA) in front of the depot and the Harvey House, which closed in about 1940. The single rail (On street side) might have been the spur line connection with Santa Fe, NM. As compared with below 2012 photo, the depot had a second story above the current "trainmaster's" room.
