This book presents in detail forty architecturally rich and picturesque houses, ranging from the earliest one-story adobe structures, with flat roofs and an emphasis on utility and simplicity, to today’s "Santa Fe style," showing deep roots in Pueblo Indian, Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo traditions. It includes the best of the "Territorial style," introduced by newcomers from the East after 1846, as well as a variety of ornate Victorian architectural styles. All-new color photographs show Santa Fe’s most beautiful houses as they have been carefully preserved today. Historic black-and-white photographs, maps, drawings, floorplans, and other original illustrations further enhance the architectural story of this hugely popular tourist destination.
