Inscription. The Lordsburg-Hidalgo Library was founded in 1928 under the leadership of Bethel Vernon Fuller (1888-1976). Mrs. Fuller, president of the Library Board of Trustees from 1928-1969, raised funds to build the WPA Pueblo Revival style building, which was completed in 1937. The historic building continues to serve as a center of learning and library services. It is listed on both the State and National Registers.
