Albuquerque is the seat of Bernalillo County, New Mexico. The city covers 188 square miles and is located on the Rio Grande. Although Native Americans inhabited the area for thousands of years, Albuquerque was officially founded in 1706 by Don Francisco Cuervo y Valdés. The city was named after the Duke of Alburquerque in Spain. (The first ‘r’ was dropped over time to make the modern spelling.)

Albuquerque is home to 559,000 people. More than 40,400 military veterans live in the city. Ten percent of Albuquerque residents are foreign-born.
