Old Santa Fe Today is an engaging read about Santa Fe’s architecture, history, and important figures through its culturally significant properties, among them churches, government buildings, and homes. The book also serves as a walking tour guide for locals and visitors wanting to sightsee.
Originally published in 1966, Old Santa Fe Today has been used by writers and scholars exploring the history and architectural significance of Santa Fe. With new essays updating the 1991 fourth edition, this fifth edition of the classic reference book also has a complete inventory of properties―now approximately one hundred―including those recently added to the Historic Santa Fe Foundation’s “Register of Properties Worthy of Preservation” since 1961. Each property entry includes revised and expanded narratives on its architecture, history, and ownership, providing social and cultural context as well.
