Preservation During the demolition of the historic Hidalgo Hotel in Lordsburg in 1997, a ceramic tile mosaic that was on display in the hotel was saved and donated to the HiUalgo County Court- house by Mrs. Soila DePaoli, widow of Q.T. "Dutch" DePaoli, the last owner of the ho- tel. The mosaic was originally on display on the third floor of the court- house but was recently moved to the hallway lead- ing to the County Treasurer's of_ rice. The Hidalgo Hotel was com- pleted in 1928, and the mosaic was installed during construc- tion or shortly thereafter. The mo- saic was designed and made by Uriarte, a traditional Talavera pottery enterprise in the city of Puebla, Mexico, which has been in existence since 1824. It was begun as a family workshop by Dimas Uriarte, but today it is run by a business group. The enter- prise still makes Talavera pottery using 16th century methods. Much of its work still uses tradi- tional colors and designs, and is eli- gible for cer- tificates of authenticity by the Mexi- can govern- ment, but it has also ex- perimented with new de- signs and forms since the .early 20th century. The ho- tel was named after Hidalgo County, which was named after the Mexican priest "Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, known as the Liberator of Mexico. The mosaic depicts Miguel Hidalgo with the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe in the background. The text on the mosaic reads: Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, Libertador de Mexico, 16 Septiembre 1810. ,,:: LUeEvER0000oNEhdVe 5omethin5 fo[ We will be 0pert at7 AM on Saturday FREE Delivery in Clty,Lmts.
