On Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12, you can sample a bit of turn-of-the-20th-century Albuquerque by touring older homes and commercial buildings in the historic Huning Highlands neighborhood west of Nob Hill.

Five homes and gardens and two commercial/residential buildings on Central Avenue and Arno, Edith, High and Silver streets are included in the tour, sponsored by the Huning Highlands Historic District Association. Tour hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Maps and brochures will be available at the tour starting point, Preservation Station, 601 Coal SE.

Go to hhhda.org/mothersday to purchase tickets online for $12 until 10 p.m. Friday, May 10, and $15 until 10 p.m. Saturday, May 11. Tickets may be purchased in person for $15 on May 12 at Preservation Station.

Huning Highlands is Albuquerque’s first neighborhood. The railroad workers, doctors, teachers and merchants from points east who settled there 120 years ago built houses like those they were accustomed to in their hometowns so that Huning Highlands came to resemble a Midwestern burg.

During the Huning Highland Mother’s Day Tour, you can get a glimpse into that time of straw hats, parasols and Sunday afternoon strolls.
