Santa Fe has recently finished the formal commemoration of its founding and, to continue the theme of the Culture, History and Traditions, Santa Fe's first ever City Historian will present a special approach to these three elements that make the City Different a choice destination for visitors from all over.

José Garcia will mention persons that were active during the Colonial, Territorial and present era along with events that helped form the character of today's Santa Fe.

As a Northern New Mexico historian and genealogist, Mr. Garcia has researched the history of New Mexico extensively. He is particularly well-versed in the history of Santa Fe from the colonial era to the present and has completed research in local archives as well as archives in Spain.

This program is free and open to the public.
