La Glorieta, Manzano Day School, Albuquerque, New Mexico
At the heart of the campus of Albuquerque’s Manzano Day School, is a centuries-old adobe hacienda known as La Glorieta. One of the oldest Spanish Colonial structures in the Albuquerque area, parts of La Glorieta date to the 1690’s. Additions and alterations over the years have resulted in a traditional floor plan of long rectangular rooms that define a central courtyard. The old building has served as classrooms and offices for several generations of students at Manzano Day School. Following the preparation of a comprehensive condidtions assessment and preservation plan for the structure, to be completed by Cornerstones, Manzano Day School will continue to use La Glorieta for educational purposes.
