Notes on the Geography of The Western United States: Santa Fe: Photo 5
This is the Santa Fe Museum of Fine Arts, built in 1917 at the southwest corner of the plaza and just a block from the Palace of the Governors. Along with the palace, this is ground zero for the architectural style incorporated in thousands of Santa Fe's buildings today. The line of descent begins at the Acoma pueblo and runs through (1) a 1909 replica of the pueblo that was commissioned by the Colorado Supply Company for its warehouse in Morley, Colorado, (2) the reconstructed Palace, (3) the New Mexico Building at the 1915 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, and (4) this museum. With the exception of the Palace of the Governors, all were designed by Isaac Rapp. He could and did work in other styles: he designed, for example, the Alhambra-ish Scottish Rite Temple, another Santa Fe landmark.
