Our Historic Building

The gallery resides at 237 East Palace Avenue in the meticulously preserved 19th century Spiegelberg house. Willie Spiegelberg, the original owner, was one of five brothers who moved to Santa Fe and built this home in 1880. Designed by a French architect and built by European artisans and craftsmen, the house is adobe construction featuring many refined European architectural details. Territorial design is evident in both the interior and exterior, as well. Solomon Spitz bought the house in 1900 and lived there until 1963 when it was sold to Dr. Edward Cook, a local dentist. John Wright Schaefer, the owner of Peyton Wright Gallery, restored much of the building to its original state for the inaugural exhibition, May 1, 1998.
