The Superintendent's Residence is the oldest building on campus. Some portion of the building is thought to date from before 1906. A residence stood at the present location when the school was authorized by the Territorial Government in 1887.

Originally a farmhouse, the Superintendent's Residence is a very early example of Pueblo Revival Style architecture that has become well known as a New Mexican architectural style made famous by architects such as John Gaw Meem and Gordon Street.

Three other buildings on the campus of NMSD were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988: Building 2, Connor Hall and the hospital.
