Early Nob Hill Architect Beula Mae Dunham Fleming

In a neighborhood with plenty of historic & unique homes, the Pumice Rock House in Nob Hill stands out. Designed by prolific early MetroABQ architect Beula Mae Fleming, the home, above, was built in 1929 toward the beginning of her long career. The English Tudor Revival home's "romantic & rustic" rock façade stone has brick accents & a steep pitched roof with gabled windows.

From the Rocky Mountain Online Archive: Beula Nixon Fleming was born on January 30, 1904 in Jicarilla, New Mexico. Fleming made a successful living as an independent designer and draftsman, 1938-1969. Most of the buildings designed by Fleming were either single or multiple family residences in Albuquerque. She also designed some dwellings in Socorro, Mountainair & surrounding New Mexico communities. Her Albuquerque designs are located in such prominent neighborhoods as Ridgecrest, Huning Highlands, Nob Hill & University Heights.

Fleming's simple residential designs took hold during the 1930's & 1940's, when Albuquerque's economy was booming. Her straightforward stucco frame houses exemplified both regional & efficient features for the times. Her signature home, below, can be found in the Nob Hill Neighborhood of Monte Vista.

Beula Mae Cornelia Nixon Dunham Fleming is the first female designer whose work is documented in the John Gaw Meem Archives of Southwestern Architecture. Her contributions to the architecture of Albuquerque's early neighborhoods left a rare legacy for a professional woman of the early twentieth century.
