Oldest church structure in US
The roof was burned during the Pueblo Revolt. the walls and foundation were preserved.
March 26 , Friday Santa Fe
Attended Santa Fe 400 year as a capital anniversary today at the Plaza. Great mariachi music. Also the Georgia O'Keeffe museum and the New Mexico History Museum. Was disappointed with the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. Most of her best work must be elsewhere. Visited Palace of the Governors on the Plaza. It is also the New Mexico History Museum. It has Indians selling their stuff in front as they have for hundreds of years.
Visited the San Miguel mission church. It is the oldest church (foundation and walls at least) in the U.S.
Next to it is the oldest house in the U.S. Built around 1200 by the Indians as part of a pueblo.
Tomorrow I will head Southeast to Santa Rosa at 4600 ft. This 7200 ft altitude is tuff on me.
