CASA SAN YSIDRO

The Albuquerque Museum's historic Casa San Ysidro: The Gutiérrez/Minge House is located in the village of Corrales, just north of Albuquerque. The original Greek revival home, built by the Gutiérrez family, dates to the 1870s.

Today Casa San Ysidro is the home of one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of New Mexican art and furnishings. Former residents Dr. Ward Alan and the late Shirley Jolly Minge developed their passion for collecting while Alan was earning a degree in Latin American history. Much of the collection was assembled as they renovated a Greek Revival adobe rancho (ranch house) believed to be built circa 1875. The Minges purchased Casa San Ysidro in 1953 and subsequently donated the property, and sold the collection to The Albuquerque Museum in 1996.

Come explore this authentic recreation of a 19th century rancho complete with a small family chapel, a central plazuela and an enclosed corral.
