Nominations For Future Review by the CPRC in 2013:
Register of Historic Places Multiple Property Documentation Form
The Greater Galisteo Basin Cultual Landscape, North-Central New Mexico
This nomination will be reviewed by the Cultural Properties Review Committee at a yet-to-be-scheduled meeting in 2013
The Galisteo Basin Archaeological Sites Protection Act of 2004 protects 25 significant archaeological sites in the greater Galisteo Basin from the foothills above Santa Fe to the San Pedro Valley to the south. The Act provides potential funding for site documentation, stabilization, erosion control, and acquisition of additional sites or portions of sites through the Bureau of Land Management, the lead federal agency.
As part of the site documentation efforts, a National Register of Historic Places Multiple Property Documentation Form has been prepared for the Greater Galisteo Basin area by the New Mexico Historic Preservation Division and its partners. The Multiple Property Documentation Form provides an archaeological and historic context that will allow sites to be nominated in the future. Individual nominations for the sites in the Act are also being prepared. These nominations recognize the sites named in the Act as irreplaceable cultural resources that were occupied during important times of transition in the northern Southwest, from prehistoric through recent times.
The CPRC will consider listing the MPDF and associated nominations in the State Register of Cultural Properties and recommend whether the nominations should be forwarded to the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places.
If you have questions, about the MPDF or the individual nominations, please contact Terry Moody at (505) 476-0444 or by e-mail at Terry.Moody@state.nm.us, or Jan Biella, Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer at (505) 827-4045 or via e-mail at Jan.Biella@state.nm.us.
