This morning we were down in Albuquerque picking up my son’s first car, when we were finished, I told VWCaddy to pull up the “Original Microsoft” office location on his phone. Knowing we were right near it I laughed when he pulled it up and saw it was right behind us on the other side of the street. So, we took a 15 second drive over to the location and VWCaddy took a snapshot of me in front of the old building by the Microsoft plaque.  The last photo shows where the MITS offices were at the west end of the building, when Bill and Paul came out here, they rented office space at the east end of the same building starting Microsoft back in 1975.

Microsoft address in 1975: 115 California St. NE, Albuquerque, NM
MITS address in 1975: 6328 Linn Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM
