AAA Editor Notes
General Lew Wallace Study & Museum, Home of “Ben-Hur” is at 200 Wallace Ave. at E. Pike St. The museum was built as the general's personal study after his 1885 return from Turkey, where he served as U.S. Minister. Wallace wrote the majority of the novel “Ben-Hur” on the study grounds; the book was completed in New Mexico. Displays of memorabilia chronicle Wallace's roles as lawyer, state senator, Civil War general, scholar and writer.
