Casa de Adobe

Visit this humble house located on the Mexico-U.S. border. It hosted important events in the planning and execution of the Mexican Revolution. 

The Casa de Adobe is a reconstruction of a primitive house that shelters stories of Mexico’s revolution history. Step inside the rooms of the Casa de Adobe to find examples of furniture and tableware from the early 20th century. Browse photographs that portray events and major figures of the Mexican Revolution. Step across the border of Mexico and the United States to see an obelisk that marks the dividing line between the two countries. 

Learn the history of the site. In April and May of 1911 the house was known as the Palacio Nacional Provisional en la Revolución Mexicana (Provisional National Palace of the Mexican Revolution). The affluent statesman and former president Francisco I. Madero met here with his advisories and strategized the revolution. Madero had ousted the notorious Porifio Díaz as president and set about his desire to bring social change and democracy to Mexico. 

The rooms of the brick house are decorated as they would have looked during the time of Francisco I. Madero. Note the replica of Madero’s manifesto on the dining table. See well-preserved wooden furniture such as sideboards and a writing desk. Other notable artifacts include cowboy hats, an antique telephone and a typewriter. 

Decorating the interior walls is a collection of black and white photographs. Spot photos of Madero and his close ally Pancho Villa in addition to images of the original house. There’s also a group shot of the most important revolution leaders and a poster that offers a reward for the capture of Villa. 

Outside to the right side of the house is a bust of Madero positioned on top of a plinth. A few meters behind the house is the official border. Cross it on foot to see the commemorative obelisk. Take a moment to appreciate the remote location of the house, surrounded by arid hills. 

The Casa de Adobe is 4 miles (7 kilometers) northwest of Ciudad Juárez’s city center. Get here by taking a taxi or catch the city sightseeing bus. The house is open from Tuesday to Sunday and admission is free.
