Edith Boulevard has gone by many names: Camino de Bernalillo, Camino de la Ladera, and Highland Road, to name a few. It emerged as an alternate route during times when mud and floods overwhelmed the Camino Real, the primary route between Santa Fe and Chihuahua in the Spanish Colonial era. The old high road was the borderline between arable and arid land, a middle ground between the floodplain to the west and dry barren hills to the east. Divided evenly between ditch roads and the main boulevard, this walk revisits a stretch historically known as El Rancho Plaza. Several structures on this route date back to the early Territorial Period (1850–1912) and have since been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It also passes near the haunted ruins of an insane asylum. Both the houses and the hospital are privately owned, so don’t stray from public right-of-ways described below.
