|Diary - Day 12||
Day 12 Monday May 23rd Santa Fe NM
Margaret & Philip Parkes
open bus tour gave us the opportunity to see many of the out of town centre
galleries (over 250) together with a condensed history of the City &
surrounding area but Museums were disappointingly closed on Mondays.
There is the “Ore House” on the Plaza (yes it used to have Wh in
front) but now its only business is catering for the thirsty and hungry.
Reputedly, the oldest public building in continuous use in USA, built 1610,
is the Palace of the Governors. In 1909 when F S Morgan was creating cars it
then became a Museum of South West history. Outside, under its shaded
portals our fascination was the local American Indian artists selling their
handmade wares – all licensed and guaranteed.
