Casa San Ysidro: The Gutiérrez-Minge House, located in the village of Corrales, just north of Albuquerque is a Greek revival home, built in the 1870s. 

The Gutiérrez family built the original house and a severe portrait of Encarnación Gutiérrez hangs in the front hall. Members of the Acoma community quarried and donated the flagstone floor for the Sala Grande. 

In the early 1950s, Shirley and Ward Alan Minge turned a late-19th century building into a plazuela-style rancho -- complete with a small family chapel, a central plazuela and an enclosed corral -- to house their exuberant collection of New Mexico vernacular art.

Casa SanYsidro was and is a working farm -- produce from the crops is used to make green chile stew at the Harvest Festival. It is considered to be one of the most comprehensive collections of New Mexican art and furnishings of the era.

San Ysidro is listed on the State Register of Cultural Properties and El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro National Historic Trail.
