The entire city of Santa Fe is historic, and there’s a strong emphasis on cultural and historic preservation in all of Santa Fe’s major landmark districts. However, when most people refer to the Santa Fe Historic District, they refer to the downtown area surrounding the Santa Fe Plaza.
Santa Fe is the oldest capital city in the nation. It was first founded in 1610. The original buildings in the settlement consisted of Santa Fe’s defining architectural feature of low-lying adobe buildings. These buildings, which are still intact today, created a defensive wall around the main plaza and formed the heart of the city.
