Presidio to Girls School: Unraveling History at Santa Fe County Judicial Center

June 12, 2018


Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 12:00 noon, free!

James Moore (Office of Archaeological Studies' project director) discusses excavations at the Santa Fe County Judicial Center.

Archaeological excavations at the Santa Fe County Judicial Center revealed a tangle of buildings and strata forming a history of the property dating from the 1790s to the second half of the twentieth century. While unraveling the story of these remains, we also solved another mystery—why there is no evidence that the large Pueblo village found under the Civic Center extended onto the judicial center property.

The Brown Bag talk will take place at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology at 12:00 noon in the CNMA library. Seating is limited. Admission is free.

The Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road) is located off of Caja del Rio Road, across from Challenge New Mexico on the way to the Santa Fe Municipal Golf Course. Take 599 to South Meadows Road, continue through the traffic circle west along the Frontage Road to Caja del Rio Road. CNMA is on the left-hand side of the road and is the large building with white sail-like skylights on the roof.
