From Wiki: Territorial Style was an architectural style of building developed and used in the New Mexico Territory from the time of the American occupation in 1846 until 1912, at which time New Mexico stopped being a territory & became a state. A vernacular subgroup, from 1860-1935, of the Territorial Style is known as the Folk Territorial, Folk Carpenter, & Spanish Folk Territorial. The style was found "particularly in Northern New Mexico", & consisted of applied wood Greek Revival & Gothic details, added to the building styles of the Pueblos & the Spanish missions in New Mexico, the Northern New Mexico adobe building construction style. Following the increase of its popularity in the 1930s & 1940s, it became referred to as the Territorial Revival style, which became another popular building style alongside New Mexico's Pueblo Revival style.

The Huning Highlands neighborhood has a lot of depth to it. I was surprised that one of the tour properties was located discreetly next to & then behind The Artichoke Cafe: the 100+ year old home/gallery opened up at the back to an expansive courtyard that lead to numerous private residences. There was an established chicken coop there, above, along with shaded sitting areas & pathways that zigged throughout the large courtyards, seen below. I'd passed by the area for 30 years & had no idea of that great space just beyond the fence. Read More
