“A hidden gem”

Historical Center for Southeast New Mexico
Reviewed 16 November 2016 via mobile

It is only open between one and four I got there at 3:15 today. The docent is a retired schoolteacher. She took me around the downstairs and let me roam the upstairs myself. They are doing major remodeling on the upstairs as they get the money.
The house was built in 1912 and has a lot of the original furnishings nice to see.

This would certainly be a cool house to live in just the way it is. Just beautiful inside and out. If you have mobility issues getting to the second floor will be a problem but there is plenty of beauty on the first level.

This 1912 Home of James P. White, one of the most wealthiest and influential men in that area, is a wonderful example of that era. The home is now a museum that is well-appointed with original and period furnishings throughout. Admission is free and well worth visiting.

For those who want a glimpse into what life was like in southeastern New Mexico in the late 19th century, or even if you're curious, it's worth the trip. We happened upon this place during the weekend that they had their holiday open house and it was lovely! It's very nice to see members of the community promoting their history and opening this place to the public.

The ladies there were so sweet and nice. They were very informative about the home, White family, and the furnishings. My son is a talker and they answered everyone question he had. Loved this, and if I could spend a day there just speaking with and learning from those 2 lovely ladies I would!!
