Neighborhood Spotlight – Madrid, NM

Maggie’s Diner in Madrid, NM. Built for the 2006 Disney movie, “Wild Hogs”. It was never used as an actual diner, and is now a gift shop.

The village of Madrid was once a coal mining community and later a ghost town, but is now a thriving home to artists and an outlet for creativity. Located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque on the Scenic Turquoise Trail (State Highway 14), Madrid is a perfect for a day trip, a shopping excursion, an education outing or a new place to call home.

Home to approximately 300, Madrid will excite art lovers with its numerous galleries exhibiting everything from sculpture to hand-stitched leather. Shoppers, make sure you allow time to visit all of the antique shops, consignment stores and quaint boutiques. Just a simple walk through the village provides visual enjoyment, with the colorful storefronts and early 20th century wooden homes. Learn the history of Madrid at the Old Coal Town Museum and be sure to visit the village hangout, the Mine Shaft Tavern.

If you make plans to visit Madrid this weekend, you can experience the Gypsy Festival, complete with music, fortune telling and belle dancing. Events take place at the Oscar Huber Memorial Ballpark from 12:00 – 7:00pm this Saturday, June 16, 2012.
