Mr. Marcus Gottschalk

Marcus Charles Gottschalk is an expert on the history of Las Vegas, N.M. Relatively unknown to most, Las Vegas was the Southwest’s most important commercial center for nearly 30 years in the late 19th century. Gottschalk, a multi-color renovation painter of historic buildings, stumbled across this gap in America’s past and has since been researching and writing about the city’s amazing legacy since 1996. Gottschalk has been a resident of New Mexico for more than 20 years.
