GRACEFULLY BOWING OUT


It was publicly announced last week that the 129 year old building is now up for sale. Earl Whittemore, who has owned the building for the past 32 years made the announcement. The graceful old building, located almost on the corner of NM Route 6 (Main Street) and NM

Route 314 was built in 1880 by the Santa Fe Railroad as a present for the mayor of Los Lunas, Don Antonio Jose Luna, for whom the village was named.

For many years now the Luna Mansion has been operated as one of the finest restaurants in the state. The restaurant operation has now been closed down. Who will buy the Luna Mansion and what will happen in the next phase of this fine old historical building's life remains unknown. What is known is that the next time you want to entertain your wife, your friend, or anyone, at an excellent meal, in a luxurious atmosphere and with the best of service, you'll have to look far and wide to equal what you could have gotten at the Luna Mansion.
