One of the oldest continually inhabited areas of the Albuquerque-Rio Grande Bosque is North Valley. An area that was once completely agricultural that has undergone many redevelopment phases over the years, North Valley has evidence of as many as 11 different pueblo sites along the fertile and lush land bordering the river. The First Nation people raised beans, corn, squash and cotton, and later Spanish settlement starting in 1709 brought cattle, grapes, wheat, and fruit trees. The area was once the site of three large dairies, and later, the Indian School and demonstration farm. North Valley after WW2 was one of the first areas to see subdivision for single-family homes to accommodate workers needed for various plants and military facilities in the area.

At times more industrial than residential, the area has been revitalized, roads moved, and drainage channels changed many times over to grow and provide what was needed to bring this part of Albuquerque back to life.
