Santa Fe

Santa Fe RailroadWhen the railroad decided to bypass the city of Santa Fe in the early 1900s, the city fathers had to scramble for economic viability. In 1912, they came up with the (well-named) 1912 Plan. They refocused the city on the adobe pueblo style architecture and created a venue for artists and tourists. Today the locomotive sits in the middle of a restaurant/shopping/gallery area in downtown.
