The Don Gaspar Historic District
is one of the historic districts in Santa Fe, New Mexico
. It extends south from the State Capitol, and is part of the South Capitol area of Santa Fe. The northern boundary is Paseo de Peralta; the eastern boundary is the Old Santa Fe Trail
; the southern boundary is Houghton Street, and the western boundary is Don Cubero. (This is approximate.) The district is primarily residential, and was largely built up in the early 20th Century, although it was apparently subdivided in the late 19th Century and at least a few of the buildings date from this earlier period. The mix of architectural styles includes California Bungalow
, late-period Victorian and Pueblo Revival
homes. Some of the homes are at least partially constructed from "pen tile" - structural tiles manufactured by the inmates of the New Mexico Penitentiary which was formerly located near the southwest end of the neighborhood. The district is transected by stretches of Don Gaspar Avenue and Galisteo Street, which run north-south.
