About Business

La Glorieta is a historic hacienda in Albuquerque, New Mexico, believed to be the oldest residence in the city. Its exact age is unknown, but it is known to have been standing in 1803 and possibly dates back as far as the 17th century. It has been the home of several generations of prominent New Mexicans: merchant Franz Huning, U.S. Representative Harvey Butler Fergusson, writer and historian Erna Fergusson, and writer Harvey Fergusson.HistoryIn the mid-17th century, a soldier from Mexico City named Diego de Trujillo established a hacienda near what would later become the Albuquerque plaza. The house was partially destroyed in the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, but was rebuilt by the Trujillo family when they returned to the area in the 1690s. According to some sources, this is the same building that was later known as La Glorieta.Franz Huning, a German immigrant and prominent local businessman, bought the property sometime before 1861 and named it La Glorieta (Spanish for "arbor" or "bower"). In 1862, the hacienda was occupied by Confederate soldiers under Henry Hopkins Sibley while Huning was away in St. Louis. Huning returned to Albuquerque in 1864 with a new wife, Ernestine Franke, and moved into the house. During his residence at La Glorieta, Huning added two additional wings to the L-shaped building to create a fully enclosed patio. The house was a popular location for social gatherings and hosted such guests as William Jennings Bryan.
