• LOCATION 28 | Oral History Tour of Madrid, NM: The Town Too High To Die

    Heaven

    Heaven, here on the right, and Gifted Hands Gallery, next door on the left, are nestled here in the crook of the highway’s elbow. After the mines shut down, Joe Huber tried to maintain Madrid’s crumbling structures. By the end of the sixties, you could count the remaining population on your fingers.

    >Linda

    We heard from Eirik as well as Linda, who owns Heaven,
    a tranquil boutique with one-of-a-kind creations for all sizes and all seasons.

    Looking now to Gifted Hands Gallery on the left, Dan’s recollection underscores the spirit behind Madrid’s rebirth.

    >Dan

    A few steps up onto the porch will bring you into Gifted Hands Gallery. The owner, Cathasha, has long had a special relationship with the local Native American Kewa and Navajo artisans. The resulting collection is as much a museum as a shop.

    Please continue walking south around the bend and you will come to the Hollar restaurant, the next location.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
