Santa Fe Found: Fragments of Time

Archaeology at the Palace of the Governors

Now celebrating its 404th anniversary, Santa Fe was once an infant city on the remote frontier. Santa Fe Found: Fragments of Time, a long-term exhibition at the Palace of the Governors, New Mexico History Museum, explores the archaeological evidence and historical documentation of Santa Fe before the Spaniards arrived, the first colony in San Gabriel del Yungue, the founding of Santa Fe, and its first 100 years as New Mexico’s capital. The exhibit, a collaboration between the History Museum and OAS, is on permanent display.
