Old Santa Fe Trail National Historic Landmark
75th Anniversary Public Event
The event is free to the public and ASLA members are personally invited to attend. During the event, areas of the building will be open for viewing, including the lobby, conference rooms and the central courtyard.
The Old Santa Fe Trail building and landscape were designed by the National Park Service and constructed between 1937 and 1941 by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) and Works Progress Administration (WPA). The building has provided an NPS presence within what is now known as the Museum Hill neighborhood for 75 years. The property was designed as, and continues to serve as, an NPS regional office building since 1939. Design and construction used the Spanish-Pueblo Revival style and signifies the CCC and WPA efforts to faithfully recreate and revive traditional architectural and craftsman traditions. The building and courtyards were designed as a whole, with most offices accessed from the central "oasis" courtyard.
