Please welcome the speaker at our next meeting

Francelle Alexander

"Albuquerque's North Valley: Alameda & Los Ranchos"

The June 2, 2018 speaker is Francelle Alexander and the title of her presentation is “Albuquerque’s North Valley: Alameda & Los Ranchos”.  This presentation is from her book by the same name.  Her book will be on sale after her program for $25. This is the second volume, which chronicles the history of the village of Alameda and the villages of the Elena Gallegos Land Grant including Los Ranchos.  The modern village of Los Ranchos encompasses much of the North Valley today, and its incorporation as a village is unique in the Middle Rio Grande Valley.  The community of Alameda, separated from much of the Alameda Land Grant and Corrales west of the Rio Grande early in its history, is the entry point to the North Valley.  Because much of its history is biographical a separate chapter is included on the lives of two wealthy families, the Armijos and Yrisarris, the ricos of the North Valley.

See you at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
