Additional Details:
With Coronado's expedition into the Southwest in 1540 there came one Hernando de Alvarado, who was captain of the artillery with the expedition. In memory of this man the Alvarado was named. This building was modelled after the old Spanish missions, the wide spreading lawns and plaza, and the graceful lines of the building remind one of the days of Spanish chivalry
