PETE EIDENBACH: Rowland Hazard III and the La Luz Pottery Factory
Monday, July 16
4:00 to 5:00 pm
Anthropologist, historian, preservation planner, and teacher Pete Eidenbach examines the history of the La Luz Pottery Factory, built in 1930 and one of the most important historic sites in Otero County, N.M. The property, now owned by the Tularosa Basin Historical Society, contains some 235 acres and includes the “Pottery,” which produced Spanish-style red barrel Mission tiles used throughout the region on residences in La Luz, Tularosa, Alamogordo and on St. Joseph's Mission church in Mescalero.
