About

Albuquerque, New Mexico, is a settlement on the Rio Grande River, west of the Sandia Mountains. Located at the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad and at the junction of I-25 and I-40, the first post office was established in 1851 as New Albuquerque. In 1882, its name was changed to Albuquerque. Founded in 1706, Albuquerque was named in honor of Don Francisco Fernandez de la Cueva Enriquez, Duke of Alburquerque, 34th Viceroy of New Spain. In 1879, the New Mexico Townsite Co., a subsidiary of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad, founded a new town in anticipation of the arrival of the first trains. Two Albuquerques and two post offices emerged, with the old town centered on the plaza and the new town on the railroad station. In 1886, the postal authorities designated the west station, Old Albuquerque, and the east station, New Albuquerque. Today, the entire area is called Albuquerque.
