Juliana Gutierrez y Chaves Hubbell / Gutierrez-Hubbell House
Juliana Gutierrez y Chaves Hubbell
Juliana was a member of two prominent early Spanish families in New Mexico and a descendant of Josefa Baca, the original owner of the land comprising present-day Pajarito. In 1849, at the age of 16, she wed trader and army officer James Lawrence Hubbell through an arranged marriage. The couple built on extensive ranch that supported a mercantile and post office, orchards, vineyards, and pasturelands for livestock, which they raised and traded. With James often away on business, Juliana managed the property, becoming the matriarch of one of the most successful trading families in New Mexico history and helping establish the modern village of Pajarito. Their Ranch is preserved today as the historic Gutierrez - Hubbell House.
Constructed in four phases in the Territorial style, the first eight rooms of the house were built from 1855-1859 around a large central hall, an architectural innovation in New Mexico at the time. The design was influenced by Eastern styles admired by Hubbell. The three-room kitchen ell added in the mid-1860s
