Pub. Date:
Madrid, New Mexico was (and is once again) known as the Christmas City. During the 1920s its annual holiday extravaganza of lights and decorations made this tiny coal mining town famous throughout the country. Behind the blaze of Christmas lights there was a working community of miners and their families who gave the town its life. With vivid accounts of miners at work and at play, Madrid Revisited explores the nature of this community, its decline as a mining town and its current renaissance as mecca for artists and artisans.
