Joseph Montoya Building

The building is named for late U.S. Sen. Joseph Montoya, who was born in 1915 in Sandoval County. In 1938, Montoya was elected to the New Mexico House of Representatives and in 1940, to the New Mexico Senate. He was elected lieutenant governor in 1946 and 1948 and elected to Congress in 1957. Montoya served as U.S. senator from 1964 to 1977. He died the following year.

The saddle that Montoya used in portraying Don Diego DeVargas in the 1950 Santa Fe Fiesta is displayed in the atrium of the building.
