The Albuquerque Historical Society, in conjunction with Historic Albuquerque, Inc., received a grant from the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund of the City of Albuquerque to develop materials and train guides to operate a free downtown tour program. The program started in 2014 and continues to this day with eleven trained guides. The tours cover the history of the development of Albuquerque with emphasis on New Town. Over fifteen historic buildings and happenings within them are highlighted along Central Avenue between First and Eighth streets in a tour that normally takes about 1 ½-2 hours.
