What do you remember about Santa Fe?

To many local Santa Fe residents and multi-generational families, this Post-WWII era is filled with rich, unique, and often times unbelievable stories that ultimately gave Santa Fe the name “The City Different.”

We want to share these stories.

Tell Your Story

Create a living, walkable archive of the City Different

Santa Fe Stories Project will create an immediate connection to Santa Fe’s recent past by allowing users to experience site-specific history. 1000 markers will be tagged around the city, each with its own set of documentation for that specific place, allowing users to learn how Santa Fe evolved into what it is today.
