LAS VEGAS, N.M. (KRQE) – Gov. Susana Martinez is celebrating the sale of a historic hotel in downtown Las Vegas.
The governor and her economic development secretary, Jon Barela, traveled to the northern New Mexico town Monday to promote the sale and planned restoration of the Hotel Castañeda.
The Hotel Castañeda was built in 1898 to serve as a food-and-rest stop along the Santa Fe Railway.
Martinez says the rehabilitated destination hotel and restaurant will serve as an anchor tenant for the Las Vegas Main Street District and have a spillover effect on other businesses in the area.
