Clyde and Carrie Tingley's home in Silver Hill Historic District. Listed on both State and National Historic Registers of Historic Places, and listed as 'Significant' in Silver Hill Historic District. Construction was completed in 1930 by Charles Lembke. The home has most of its original features intact, including the original brick dog house of Clyde's bulldog.

Mr. and Mrs. Tingley moved from Ohio to New Mexico in 1910, at the recommendation of Carrie's doctor, to move to the warmer climate of the southwest to help her tuberculosis. Clyde served on the Albuquerque City Commission (later know as the City Council) from 1912-1920. He later served as district maintenance superintendent of the New Mexico State Highway Department for the Albuquerque district from 1925-1926, and was also a delegate to Democratic National Conventions of 1928, 1932, and 1936. He was elected Governor of New Mexico in 1934, and then re-elected in 1936.

During this time, he set up over a dozen hospitals in the state, and was an outspoken advocate for healthcare, particularly for children. After the end of his tenure as Governor, he was elected chairman of the Albuquerque City Commission, a position later known as Mayor of Albuquerque.
