Additional Details:
Central Avenue, which goes through the very center of Albuquerque, is also designated as U.S. Highway "66", one of the finest coast-to-coast highways in the nation. It is certainly one of the most historic roads in all America, for possibly at this very point, the Conquistadores may have passed on their way to Santa Fe, the wagon trains of the early settlers, Indians raiding parties or the protecting troop of soldiers, all may have played their small part in the eventual creation of the Central Avenue of today
