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

The intent of this effort is to create a complete inventory of historic memorials, monuments and markets as an informational resource for civic leaders and the community.
