"A Palace in Need of Repair: 1600-1720" 6 p.m.
Built ca. 1610, the Palace of the Governor's is the oldest continually occupied public building in the United States. A National Historic Landmark, the Spanish built it as a residence for the Spanish royal governor. Native Americans built a pubelo-like structure on top of it during the 1680 Pueblo Revolt that was largely dismantled in 1693 when the Spanish regained control of New Mexico. The evolving appearance of the palace is addressed in the talk accompanied by renditions of what it may have looked like over the years.
Location: New Mexico History Museum auditorium, 113 Lincoln Avenue, Santa Fe
