Gallup was where my children were born. I came there almost by accident…had just gotten married and we decided to start a new MatCo Tool distributorship, then I launched my Real Estate career and earned the distinction of being the first woman to break that market.. It was an excellent place, nestled right in the middle of Indian reservations.
When we first moved to Gallup, there were no department or “big box” stores and no shopping centers. The city has grown significantly since that time thanks to its strategic location among the Native American tribes and its unique position as a stopping off spot when traveling from Albuquerque to Flagstaff and Phoenix.
