ⓘ Don Gaspar Historic District

The Don Gaspar Historic District is a historic district in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The listing included 278 contributing buildings.

The oldest houses single-storey Adobe structures.

It extends South from the Capitol, and is part of the South capital district of Santa Fe. The Northern boundary is Paseo de Peralta, the Eastern border is the old trail to Santa Fe, the southern boundary is Houghton street, and the Western border is not Kubera approximate.

The district is primarily residential, and was built mainly in the early 20th century, although it was obviously split in the late 19th century and at least a few buildings from this earlier period.

The mixture of architectural styles include California Bungalow, late Victorian and Pueblo Revival homes. Some of the houses, at least partially made of the "pen tile" - structural tiles are made prisoners in the new jail in Mexico, which was previously located near the southwestern end of the quarter. The district is crossed by don Gaspar Avenue and the streets of the territory, which run from North to South.
