• LOCATION 6 | Oral History Tour of Madrid, NM: The Town Too High To Die

    Sunday School

    You’re standing in front of a Trading Post, which was once a Sunday School, and a green house on its left, which used to be the town barber shop.

    You’ll be hearing these names a lot, so let me clarify. Oscar Huber ran Madrid during its boomtown days. His son Joe took over a ghost town, and eventually sold it to re-settlers in 1973 with the aid of his father’s right-hand man, Johnny Achoa.

    First, we’re going to hear from Mary, talking about her dad Oscar.

    >Oscar, Ducks

    That was Waz and Lilly. Now, please continue about fifteen yards north up the road and stop at the big house with the large shady porch, and a sign that says “The Trading Bird.”

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
