Memorials - Monuments - Markers Inventory
The following is a working list of memorials, monuments and markers to historic events/people on City property. The list was compiled by various City departments, site visits and existing inventories. The criteria for inclusion were:
- Memorials are structures or objects designed to preserve the memory of a person or event; monuments are statues or other structures erected to commemorate notable persons or events; markers are signs or objects that show the location, presence or existence of an historic site or person, excluding donor/supporter acknowledgements.
- Historic is 50 or more years old (i.e. pre-1967).
- Memorials, monuments and markers must be in/on land (parks, trails, etc.), buildings and/or real property (benches, signs, etc.), excluding streets, owned by the City of Santa Fe.
- Special events List

We encourage members of the public to review the list. If you believe an object is included in error, or would like to submit an object for possible inclusion, please use the submission form online. The intent is to create a complete inventory of historic memorials, monuments and markets as an informational resource for civic leaders and the community.
