Background of the Ernie Pyle Library

The Ernie Pyle Library is the former home of famed war correspondent Ernie Pyle. The City of Albuquerque acquired the house from the Pyle estate and in 1948 opened it as a branch library. You'll find Pyle memorabilia alongside the library's books and media.

Every detail, including the picket fence built by Pyle and the grave marker of his dog, Cheetah, has been carefully preserved. In 1997 the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a National Historic Landmark on September 20, 2006.

For more information, visit our Who was Ernie Pyle? page.


Public Art @ Ernie Pyle Library

The Ernie Pyle Library is proud to be the home of Brave Men by artist Willard Schroeder, a white cement relief sculpture memorializing Captain Henry T. Waskow. This sculpture is part of Albuquerque's Public Art Collection. Find out more about the City of Albuquerque's Public Art on the city website.
