The history of Nob Hill Albuquerque is one that you may find right of the movie “Cars”. This historic area was visited by many traveling on Route 66 in the late 20’s and 30’s trying to get west during the great depression. But during the late 30’s, people became to forego the vibrancy of Nob Hill to travel speeds of 60 – 70 miles per hour do to the opening of I-40. During that time, several businesses were forced to close shop and seek a living elsewhere in the city.
Throughout the years, with the combination of the University of New Mexico and the pride of the people of this area, Nob Hill real estate has become one of Albuquerque’s must sought after areas. I ALWAYS enjoy showing Nob Hill homes for sale. They are unique and historical and a true pleasure to be a part of.
