History Experienced at La Fonda Hotel
December 3, 2016A large and enthusiastic group of TTN members and guests were treated to tour led by docent/guide Lynn Clark on December 3rd. Lynn first gave us a talk on the history of the La Fonda Hotel which sits on a site where there has been an inn or hotel since 1607! She then guided us through the lobby and hotel corridors where we viewed historical art such as antique headboards as well as paintings from the Fred Harvey era. We were able to visit an unoccupied room which has been restored, boasting many historical elements. We also explored state rooms: one with an intriguing period map and another with many decorative paintings from the Mimbres culture. The tour concluded with a visit to the bell tower which offers terrific views of Santa Fe. Look for a TTN "happy hour" event there when warm weather returns!
