Walking Tour of Santa Fe Downtown

Contributed by

The former N.M. State Historian Roberto Torres in the 1990's was asked to come up with an official history for a walking tour of Santa Fe so that tours conducted by various individuals would be consistent, accurate, and enjoyable; and wild claims in such tours as: "Billy the Kid shot at Abraham Lincoln here at this spot" would be disspelled.  Often tour guides just made up stuff to have a unique tour---such disrupetableness could fall back on the hotels, resturants, conferences and tour companies which were associated with them.  The walking tour was submitted to a City Council-appointed committee for approval and additions; and the whole "script" was tested on some actual tours.

   Albuquerque now has its Balloon Fiesta but in 1930 there were an intrepid group of daring men and women in Santa Fe. We are not talking simple baloons here these are GLIDERS! Fome the April 29, 1930 New Mexican.
