Albuquerque Historical Society (AHS) is a non-profit, membership
organization of residents interested in promoting and preserving all
matters relating to the history of Albuquerque, New Mexico and the
surrounding communities. Founded in 1947 as the Old Town Historical
Society, it originally focused on efforts to preserve the historic
character of Old Town Albuquerque.
Currently, AHS sponsors a
series of monthly programs or tours and
traditionally meets on the third Sunday of each month at 2:00 PM.
Meetings are held at the Albuquerque Museum, located on Mountain Road NW
in Old Town, unless otherwise indicated in the monthly program notice.
All AHS meetings are open to the public at no charge.
Society sponsors tours to historic points of interest in the Albuquerque
area and/or holds meetings or receptions in locations of special
historic interest. Sometimes there is a small charge for visiting that facility.
