The residential neighborhoods of Nob Hill are among the best preserved examples of early 20th Century architecture in Albuquerque. Nob Hill started developing 96 years ago. Owing to a fortunate set of circumstances its neighborhoods still provide a vivid picture of Albuquerque as builders pushed out of the valley and onto the east mesa. Its houses illustrate the picturesque architectural styles popular at the time and provide a verifiable evidentiary record of a significant architectural past.
