Santa Fe at Night

October 8, 2006

Santa Fe is the second oldest city in the United States. It was founded in 1609, before any cities in the northeast. (The oldest city is St. Augustine in Florida, 1565). The plaza in downtown Santa Fe has been the center of town since 1610. The oldest public building in the United States, the Palace of the Governers, is located on the plaza. It is also the end of the Santa Fe Trail.
