Entry and First Place Recipient 2011 HALS Challenge: Celebrating Cultural Landscapes of Diversity
Significance: Fairview Cemetery (now Fairview Memorial Park) was the first cemetery established to serve New Town Albuquerque, which was founded April of 1880 with the coming of the railroad into the middle Rio Grande valley. Its earliest internment, Mary Josephine Perea, dates to February 27, 1881. The cemetery's layout reflects a combination of design elements borrowed from the Rural and Picturesque cemetery movements popular in the East and Midwest. The cemetery is the final resting place of many prominent New Mexicans and Albuquerque civic leaders. The cemetery retains many original character-defining features such as spatial layout, circulation, patterns, and small-scale elements such as grave markers.
