Come to Santa Fe, New Mexico

Next May, the 190SL Group will convene for our annual meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico starting in the evening of May 19th. We will be housed at the La Posada de Santa Fe. The original building was built in 1882 for the Staub family and there's a possibility that Julia is still around. You're welcome to get rooms in the main building or in the casitas on the grounds. 
 
Santa Fe has been a capitol city since 1610 and New Mexico was first invaded by Europeans in 1539. It has a rich and brutal history of settlement and conquest. The attractions include numerous museums trying to explain and demonstrate this history. There's even Civil War history with the Battle of Glorieta Pass. Its way overblown description is the "Gettysburg of the West". More recently, Santa Fe is associated with the development of nuclear weaponry from late WWII to the present. The Pecos National Historic Park incorporates the battlefield site and ancestral ruins we'll visit. 

Santa Fe became an arts center early in the 1900s. Photography, painting, traditional and performance arts have been big. The museums and galleries representing these arts are numerous. The Georgia O'Keefe Museum well-
represents her work. Tours of her Ghost Ranch property and area are available and take the better part of a day to visit. With lots of advance planning, you'll be able to make reservations for tours. Think ATB, although some tours are only available during the Convention.

There are breweries and restaurants, of course. We will try to patronize a few of them while we are in Santa Fe.

Your job is to make a housing reservation as soon as possible. A link will be provided on the website soon.
