Perry E. Borchers

Created in 1933, the Historic American Buildings Society (HABS) federal program established the first systematic identification and documentation of historic buildings throughout the United States. This is a complete history of HABS in New Mexico, an ongoing project dedicated to the preservation of four centuries of architecture.


"The starting point for a more profound understanding of New Mexico's legacy of historic architecture and a renewed effort to preserve what remains."
