Santa Fe 400th Anniversary
Historically, the theme of “All Trails Lead to Santa Fe” chronicles the historical evolution of how Santa Fe became the great southwestern city that it is. Metaphorically, “All Trails Lead to Santa Fe” is about connecting historical and cultural values from prehistoric to modern times with the many stories about the people whose lives shaped the epical history of Santa Fe.
